Came across this song, and had been playing it in an endless loop.

Baba Yetu is actually a song from Videogame Civilization IV, but is now famous globally. It's a Swahili version of the song 'The Lord's Prayer', and is the first video game song to win a Grammys.
Have you guys heard this, or any of its renditions before ? I've seen another live rendition by Christopher Tin (original composer), with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I thought this was more closer to the original, which was sung by Ron Ragin.

That's beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing. I've always really loved when I hear the Lord's Prayer put to song. I was very moved the first time I ever heard it (in English).

Is it a good game? How are the visuals? Do you recommend?

Very fun. Somewhat steep learning curve. Visuals are okay, but secondary to the gameplay.
