In Africa, Easter has a social dimension as well as a spiritual one. At Easter families come together. They share special food with Christians and non-Christians indulging in boiled or roasted rice with meat or chicken. Meat being very scarce and expensive in Africa, the laws of abstinence (not eating meat) does not hold good. In the Easter Vigil hundreds of people assemble in the church building which decorated by Vitenge and Kanga, clothes made up in the form of butterflies, flowers, banana trees, etc. Hymns are accompanied by the beating of drums and Kigelegele, the high-pitched sounds made by women. After the Mass, traditional dances are held outside of the church. Then people return home to continue their celebrations with local food and drinks.
Africa is a hymn tune composed by William Billings.
