About

One Voice is a music project for the Earlyact and Interact clubs of Tanzania. Earlyact and Interact are youth programs of Rotary, where schools aged students focus on serving their community.

Tanzania is a growing force in the Rotary world. Many Rotary clubs are taking the lead to sponsor Earlyact and Interact clubs. In 2019 the Country Interact Team wanted to create a project to unite the Earlyactors and Interactors together and the One Voice Project was formed. The Earlyactors and Interactors recorded a song discussing how Earlyactors and Interactors rise up to create peaceful and loving societies.

To support the Earlyactors and Interactors in creating the song the One Voice Team was created consisting of Seb Cox, a Past Country Chair of Earlyact and Interact in Tanzania with three musicians who have a wealth of experience of writing and recording music in Tanzania; Hilda Green, Aziz Ngassa and Daz Naledge.

The song was recorded and filmed over 9 location in both Tanzania and Australia, with four Earlyact and six Interact clubs involved. All coming together to see, hear and feel the power of music!

The song and video was launched in April at the Rotary District 9211 94th District Conference and Assembly at the Julius Nyerere International Conference Centre in Dar es Salaam in front of over 1000 Rotarians from Tanzania, Uganda and around the world.

Lyrics

Music is our inspiration
One voice our aspiration
You can see us everyday
In every smile, every laugh
And all they joy that comes your way

If one voice,can break a silence
We gon sing, when the world is quite
Kwa amani na upendo
Tupaze na sauti
Tuimbe na tucheze
Tupaze na sauti

Coz one voice,can break a silence
We gon sing, when the world is quite
Kwa amani na upendo
Tupaze na sauti
Tuimbe na tucheze
Tupaze na sauti
Uyee yee
We mama wee
We baba weee
We dada wee
We kaka wee
Uyee yee (ahuu)
Uyee yee (ahuu)
Uyee yee (ahuu)
Uyee yee (ahuu)
Uyee yee (ahuu)
Uyee yee (ahuu)

Kwenye pwani ya amani, tokea zamani,
Upendo, urafiki ndio vitu vya thamani,
Tushuke mlimani, tukutane uwanjani,
tucheze kwa furaha Kila kona ya ramani

Love is our culture
Bright future for us all
Together we are stronger, apart we gonna fall
From the shores, the lakes, the mountains, the cities to the streets
Our heart is one drum echoing beat.
