Hello Mr. Christopher TIn!
I have really enjoyed listening to the piece "Baba Yetu" which was on the Civilization IV soundtrack. What inspired you to compose the piece in Swahili? I love how it is the "Lord's Prayer" as well!
Thank you for answering my question,
It was a matter of practicality… I was writing a song for Civ IV, and I had a melody in mind already. I just had to find lyrics. The singing group I was working with (Talisman) already knew the pronunciation of the Swahili translation to the Lord's Prayer, so it was just sort of a happy accident.
How did you get the chance to work on making a song for Civilization 4? It sounds absolutely amazing and I love your work.Christopher Tin responded on 02/19/2014 Next question
I absolutely love your music and I am in the process of buying all your music. I have to ask where do you get inspiration from and is there any way I can buy licences to use your music like Baba Yetu in youtube videos as a backing to video?
