The first person I heard singing, that made a memorable impression on me was my grandfather at church.  Sometimes I feel the memory is so vivid I can actually hear this tenor voice .  This created  goose pimples on one’s skin and shivers down one’s spine.  So it was not a surprise, that his school pupils were known for being very good at singing too.

In fact the whole town is good at singing.  You should hear their Easter Singing Fest, as I have been told it’s a magnificent and joyous occasion. This is when singers from surrounding towns come together for the celebrations.  Although I have never been a witness to this spectacle, I hope the tradition is being continued because its a shame to loose it.  The family continue to sing in fine voice, here’s to you Togbi (Grandpa).
