Che Che Koolay, also known as \'Kye Kye Kule\', is a wonderful repeat-after-me song that comes from Ghana, Africa.
The lyrics to Che Che Koolay are:
Che Che Koolay,
Che Che Kofisa
Ka Ka Silanga
Kum Ade Nde
I don\'t know the exact translation of Che Che Koolay, but from my understanding, it\'s a group dance in which singer touch their toes, knees, shoulders, and head- similar to the song \"Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes.\"
To get the most out of this song, we\'ve created a simple set of rhythmic ostinatos to accompany the song. Learning to play these ostinato lines while others are singing is a great way to strengthen steady beat. If you don\'t have the instruments used in the video, feel free to improvise with things around you that could serve as instruments.
