Music:                 Original song: "Mayibuye I Africa" by Chimora (118 bpm)  Intro:  32 counts.
                        Unfortunately, I believe this South African CD is now sold out and out of print but
                        IT IS AVAILABLE ON CD 'DANCING WITH BILL 'N JAN' from website:
http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~janwyllie
Slow or Teaching: "Old Country" by Mark Chesnutt (95 bpm)  This beautifulsong is a great choice
                          for a slow song option.  Restart after the Kick-Back-Fwd of the 5th repetition.
                          It is easy to hear this restart coming because that is the instrumental section.
