Composer Jim Papoulis has created an energetic and uplifting work that fuses the rhythms from African, American and Latin cultures, and uses a text primarily in Swahili interspersed with phrases in Spanish. Supported by shaker, Djembe and agogo bell, the middle section has the feel of a real celebration with layers of spoken word that lead us to the understanding: listen, hear, stand strong. Duration: ca. 3:15. Performed by Young People's Chorus of NYC, Francisco Núñez, conductor.
