“Plakatap” is a rhythmically exciting piece that choirs love to perform, and audiences love to hear. It celebrates the fact that while we all might from different cultures, we are all part of the same humanity! It is a catchy tune and is a lot of fun to learn and perform.

Translation of French text:

Children of all countries,
Youth from everywhere,
Sing, jump, dance!
On foot or by bike,
Our bags on our backs,
Plakatap – Plakatap,
Plakatap – Plakatap!

Let’s party, let’s sing!
Let’s celebrate Humanity with one heart,
And let us all sing our Fraternity in chorus!

Regardless of what’s happening,
In spite of the distance,
We are one family
Of young men and women.
Let us dwell in the Unity
Of one Humanity….
