Ridvan song in Swahili

I have been posting videos of Ridvan songs in different languages for the 12 days of Ridvan!

Yesterday I posted a Ridvan song in German and below is the next video for the Ridvan song in Swahili sung by talented singer Auntieclare Rezin!   I was raised in Kenya so this version has a special place in my heart.  I wanted to include a language from Africa so Swahili seemed to be most appropriate as my parents, relatives and dear friends still live there!

The following languages have already been posted:  

Ridvan song in English
Ridvan song in Arabic
Ridvan song in Japanese
Ridvan song in Swedish
Ridvan song in Portuguese
Ridvan song in Chinese
Ridvan song in French
Ridvan song in German
Ridvan song in Spanish

I look forward to sharing the next video on the blog tomorrow (every morning at 7am Beijing time). Kindly share with friends who speak German.

Lyrics:

Furahini kwa furaha kubwa mno, enyi watu wa Baha, mnapozikumbuka Siku ya Shangwe kuu kabisa…

Rejoice with exceeding gladness, O people of Bahá, as ye call to remembrance the Day of supreme felicity… – Bahá’u’lláh

Allah’u’Abha
