Meaning "fire" in the Iroquois language, Katsista was inspired by traditional Iroquois ceremonies involving the extinguishing of old household fires, the stirring of ashes, and the rekindling of new fires. The melody, while original, imitates native American songs in its simplicity, inflection, and quiet beginning. Ample use of steady-paced percussion provides a ceremonial feel.
