This original piece incorporates a multiplicity of multicultural influences, from Peru to Scotland. The text is a sequence of nonsense syllables, imitating the humming and muttering one does during housework. This second movement, whose slow groove is derived from Raggae, incorporates tonalities and scale structures from Brazil and Lebanon.
