Fasten your seatbelts for this show stopper! From Haiti, this piece appears more complex than its straight four part setting and would be an excellent festival selection for good high school choirs and beyond. It tells the tale about three drums in playful competition. The rhythms are handled with ease, repeated patterns help quick learning, and there is a complete pronunciation guide for the Haitian language. Duration: ca. 3:35.
