Enjit-Enjit Semut (SA)
Enjit-Enjit Semut is a Malay folk song that originates from Indonesia. Children sing this while playing a ‘pinching’ game. An allusion to the meaning of the song is a lesson about learning to face challenges and hardship in life, to be able to have strength of character to withstand the ‘pain’ that life sometimes affords us. With a fairly restricted pitch range, this arrangement is suitable for beginning children's choirs with a lower tessitura. Back to YCA Choral Series.
