Culture of Angola

The most famous Angolan folk song is Kumbaya (Come by here, my Lord). However, its origin in Angola is disputed by those linguists who believe it to have originated in Gullah, a creole language from the South Carolina / Georgia coast. If this is correct, then the song must have been exported to Angola, most probably by American missionaries, and then rediscovered there at a later date.
