    Maneno Ya - Dan Price

    Commissioned in 2012 by the Penicuik Silver Band, Maneno Ya is a hymn with a difference. The band wanted to include an African influenced work within thier concert programme and commissioned Maneno Ya from brass and winc band composer Dan Price.The name Maneno Ya (pronounced Mah-Neh-Noh - Yah) is Swahili and translates as ‘song' hence the subtitle of the piece - A ‘Song' of Africa.The work has four percussion parts but other than the drum kit part, these are optional. Percussion can play a large role in this piece if desired with parts doubled or improvised over to create a more authentic sound.This is an approachable concert item which any band could play and enjoy.
