Choicest VGM - VGM #159 - Quest for Glory III - Simbani Village

Composed by: Rudy Helm

This piece plays when the Hero makes it to the Simbani Village which belongs to the same tribe that Uhura hails from (Uhura is a warrior you meet in Shapeir's Adventurer's Guild in the previous Quest for Glory game). The Simbani, most likely modelled after the Maasai people of East Africa, actually rotate to different sites or villages throughout the year as they tend to their flock of cows - cows being extremely important in their culture. I like this track because it's a light-hearted tune that evokes images of people who despite living a subsistence lifestyle are happy with their lot in life. You'll probably hear it play quite often too considering you spend a good portion of the game at the Simbani Village honing the Hero's skills.

Thanks to Sierra On-Line and Quest Studios for providing these memorable tracks.
