This piece features Haitian rhythms and challenging harmonies. The treble setting uses a text about “harmonizing life's activities” – dance being one. A great festival or concert piece for developing choirs, well worth the preparation efforts! While sung in Haitian Creole, it has English translation and an IPA pronunciation guide. Audio pronunciation guide and practice tracks are posted by the composer at www.sydneyguillaume.com.
