Track Name: Kamal Imani - Feel the love of KWANZAA-Dance-House
This Kwanzaa song includes a brief and an extensive break down of the 7 Principles of Kwanzaa by Dr. Maulana Karenga as well as a wonderful song that the entire family can dance to and enjoy.

The Nguzo Saba

1.Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
2.Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
3.Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.
4.Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
5.Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
6.Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
7.Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
Kwanzaa symbols include a decorative mat (Mkeka) on which other symbols are placed: corn (Mahindi) and other crops, a candle holder kinara with seven candles (Mishumaa Saba), a communal cup for pouring libation (Kikombe cha Umoja), gifts (Zawadi), a poster of the seven principles, and a black, red, and green flag. The symbols were designed to convey the seven principles.
Track Name: Happy Kwanzaa Remix - Happy Kwanzaa Remix
Have no fear as we come into The winter solstice and the new year
We erase negative karma and shed old skin
It’s time for prayer, affirmations and soul reunions
Reunions of love

Reunions of the first principal of Kwanzaa Umoja Unity
So that we can rebuild our communities


2. Kujichagulia we need self determination and to realize that we are a nation within a nation.
3. Ujima collective work and responsibility as we focus on the whole and not individuality
4. Ujaama cooperative economics, The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey told you that. It’s time to buy Black!
5. Nia, purpose, refocusing on why we are here.
6. Kuumba, Creativity, to innovate and therefore elevate
7. Imani, We must have faith in our God, Our Self and our Soujourn

On your mission on earth, what have you learned?
What have you shared?
Who have you made better?
It’s time to renew our love and respect for one another

Happy Kwanzaa

Peace to the founder Dr. Maulana Karenga!
