    Congrats, Christopher! Baba yetu has got to be one of the best and most memorable songs ever. It makes Civ 4 the outstanding game it is in all aspects. Yea!

    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.
