Say Ladeo, another watershed from VOCAbuLarieS, captures every singer and every listener immediately with its incredibly beautiful rhythmic counterpoint. It’s pure Bobby McFerrin genius and character. The hook, “A song becomes a thousand songs,” expresses Bobby McFerrin’s wordless approach to music. “A song with words is one song,” he says, “but a song without words becomes a different song for everyone.” This iJazzMusic.com version has an Interactive section, where choirs can jump “off the page” and create their own Circle Songs and then jump back into the written music for the out-chorus and ending of the song.
