Bonse Aba is a Christian song of celebration that is popular throughout Zambia. Though often sung without accompaniment, Bonse Aba may be performed with drums or other percussion instruments. Using a combination of several low- and high-sounding drums (playing contrasting rhythms) with several types of hand-held African percussion instruments can be very effective. For both aural and visual authenticity, African percussion should be utilized.

A Tone that has a sturdy, folk-like quality should be utilized on Bonse Aba. A more conventional choral tone appropriate for most western art music, including the use of vibrato (at least for the chorus) should be avoided.
