WEC missionary Neil Barker recorded these songs in the context of specially arranged song writing workshops, based at a local WEC-related church. The workshops were publicised to other neighbouring churches with Jola believers (both Fogny and Kaasa). The songs were accompanied by drums; often different djembes (drums) were used. As with so many groups that use their heart music to worship God, when these songs are used the praise seems to 'take off', and no one can keep still!
