A beautiful African lullaby that we sing in class in both English and Luganda and recorded for All Around This World: Africa at a long-distance recording session with musicians in Kampala, Uganda. We first heard this lovely song on the CD Abayudaya: Music from the Jewish People of Uganda.
LYRICS OF ALL AROUND THIS WORLD VERSION
Tulo tulo kwata amwana, bwoto mukwate nga olimulogo, ssebo wulila
Njagala ngendeko kumazina nzine kundongo, nkyuse kubulamu obulamu wikulika
Tulo Tulo, go to sleep my pretty baby, dream sweetly through the night
In your dreams you’ll dance in moonlight, in your dreams you’ll soar through the starry sky Tulo Tulo, go to sleep my pretty baby, dream
sweetly through the night
