Life is beautiful (Ubomi bumnandi)
By Sören Sieg
This duet for tenor and bass recorder is my favorite piece from the Umlanjana collection by Sören Sieg. I love the flowing rhythm in the bass part  which provides a cool platform for the tenor line. You can imagine yourself in your favorite place and enjoy your swingy time with your recorder. In one bar there is also nice frullato (flutter tongue) in the tenor part but you can also experiment with other techniques like glissando or vibrato.
