All the other songs are amazing as well. I even prefer Mado Kara Mieru to Baba Yetu. Christopher Tin is unbelievably talented and completely deserves this.

Everybody loved Baba Yetu. I don't understand why they didn't just bring it back for Civ 5 and made it the official theme song for Civilization. At the very least they should have brought back Christopher Tin for a new song.
