A fun African food song we first heard on W. Moses Serwadda’s collection, Songs and Stories from Uganda. “‘Keenenee” is the way a young Bagandan child says the word for raspberries. The song appears in a story in the collection about how some village children accepted help from an unfamiliar animal named Baluba and he ultimately provided a feast for them, including a voluminous amount of raspberries, which they shared with their neighbors.
