This exhilerating percussion ensemble piece was composed to capture the energy and spirit which exists in all African communities. Through the use of the multilinial mode of drumming, which often accompanies dances in a tribe, composer Michael Udow takes polyrhythmic structure and cross rhythms to create an African musical style set for "Western" percussionists. Featuring an optional split chorus, this piece will truly thrill your audience!
