Musical Monday: “Baba Yetu” (Civilization IV), composed by Christopher Tin

This week’s song is another golden oldie: “Baba Yetu”, the opening theme to 2005’s Civilization IV. Soaring, hopeful, filled with joy — this is the perfect celebration of civilisation, of our achievements in science and art and engineering. Sadly, the official music video below (with its footage taken from the game’s intro movies) also highlights the other half of Civ, our talent for finding new ways to kill each other, but that’s another story…


Note that the official music video uses the version of the song from the “Calling All Dawns” album. Enjoy!
