Songs of the Gullah People

      YOU TUBE

The Gullah People were originally from the Rice Coast or Windward Coast of Africa.  They came to America as slaves to work on the large Southern Coastal Rice Plantations of South Carolina and Georgia.  They developed a rich heritage through much hardship and struggle.  Listening to this song, one can hear the soul of a people that are weary yet who are persevering through difficult times.
