Thread Name: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
There was some discussion of "Kumbaya" on alt.usage.english a while back. The dialect in the song is certainly close to Gullah but so are some other dialects. Apparently Gullah is often considered an African language that just happens to use English words!
