Kumbaya my lord (Kalimba tab)

Kumbaya is a spiritual song that originated in the African American community during the 1930s. The phrase Kumbaya means "Come by Here" in Gullah, a creole language spoken in the Georgia and South Carolina Sea Islands. The song is typically sung as a call-and-response, with the leader singing the verses and the congregation responding with the refrain "Kum ba yah, my Lord, kum ba yah." "Kum ba yah" has become a symbol of peace and unity, and has been used in various social movements, including the Civil Rights Movement. Its emotional impact lies in its plea for divine intervention and communal support during difficult times.
