Dance for Masankho’s Wedding!

Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.  Shake out one hand. Shake out the other. Shake out whatever you are sitting on. Shake out your voice! Get ready to sing and dance!

Masankho, our InterPlay Ambassador of peace is getting married to his sweetheart Siphiwe Mathandalizwe Kandiero in Malawi Saturday August 20th!

Sing along on this Wedding Song composed by Minnesota InterPlayer James Shattauer (other credits below!)

See Masankho smiling on his wedding day
Suhpeewee is the reason that he feels this way

And they are dancing
And they are joyful
We are joining our hearts with them
Many miles away

And we are dancing
And we are joyful
We are joining our hearts with them
Many miles away—On their wedding day.

See Suhpeewee smiling on her wedding day
Masankho is the reason that she feels this way

And they are dancing
And they are joyful
We are joining our hearts with them
Many miles away

And we are dancing
And we are joyful
We are joining our hearts with them
Many miles away—On their wedding day.

On their wedding day (we are smiling)
On their wedding day (we are dancing)
On their wedding day (we are singing)
On their wedding day (we are joyful)


We are joining our hearts with them
Many miles away—
On their wedding day eee yay eee yay
On their wedding day
On their wedding day eee yay eee yay
On their wedding day! (Repeat)

Say aloud this Wedding Poem by Kabir HelminskiLove is a Stranger” Threshold Books, 1993

May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcome
as the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.

Blow a big kiss to Masankho, Siphiwe, and their families in Malawi!
