Original composition scored for a large ensemble. A complex, challenging & energetic work, integrating variegated aural symbolic themes, melodic & rhythmic structures & antique motifs of the music of the upper Ngemba people of the savanna grass fields of Equatorial Africa. It is a thematic exposition on the very primal essence of the music of the masquerade musical art form composed & conveyed in a contemporary form with Western instrumentation.
