The partner song
A partner song is made up of two songs that are sung at the same time. Dr. Ysaye Barnwell uses "Wade in the Water" and three other spirituals at the same time on her Singing in the African American Tradition CD collection (see Resources). Also see Joanne Hammil's Rounds & Partner Songs, Vols. 1 and 2, and Robert Perinchief's Honor Your Partner Songs.
