The first movement is based on a popular Yoruba folk song titled, "Olurombi." The second movement in the key of A major is built on a Yoruba Christian song, "Ise Oluwa ko le baje" (The Work of the Lord is indestructible). The last piece, "Iya Ni Wura Iyebiye" (Mother is a priceless jewel), is also a derivation of another popular Yoruba folk song. All the three movements are actually a re-setting of pieces from another major composition of mine titled, Childhood Dreams for Piano Solo.< Less

The five songs in this collection are based on languages spoken among the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria--Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, and English, that is the official national language. "Oluwa... More > Gbo Adura Mi" is a prayer song that appeals to God to answer a specific request. It should be sung with emotion and reverence as if in the presence of the Lord. "Ale Ti Le" enunciates the virtues of a good mother and it is an aria in three distinct sections. "Imela Chinekem" is a song of joy and thanksgiving to God for His goodness and it is an original composition. "Akoi Wata Geri" is based on a popular folk song from the Hausa ethnic group of northern Nigeria. In compliance with the theoretical principles of Nigerian traditional music, the melody of this song is set to mirror the Hausa texts. "They That Wait Upon the Lord" was composed at Ile-Ife, Osun State, in southwest of Nigeria, in 1985. The text is derived from Isaiah 40: 31, but the melodic line of the song and piano accompaniment are original.< Less

More > Wedding Dance is borrowed from a popular Yoruba wedding song titled, "Awa l'egbe oniyawo" (We are the members of the bride's group). The piece is characterized by scintillating dance rhythms to compel the performer and listeners to dance. The stylistic and harmonic organization reminisce that of a popular West African dance band music called "Highlife." Similar to most African traditional music, the Wedding Dance consists of simplicity and repetition. This piece is most appropriate for the recession of the newly-wedded couple from the church sanctuary.< Less

The texts of the three songs are actually three verses of a popular Yoruba wedding song... More > in Nigeria. The texts are borrowed, but the melodies and piano accompaniments are original. The texts have been modified in this work to align with solo performance. The vocal parts are essentially in pentatonic scale, while the piano accompaniments are in pentatonic and diatonic modes. Songs No. 1 and No. 3 are through-composed, while song No. 2 is in three distinct sections like an aria. The vocal melodies are very simple, however, the accompaniments supply interesting shades of colors and varied rhythmic patterns to sustain the motion. The melodic contours of the songs mirror the tonal inflections of the texts since Yoruba language is a tonal language. The rhythmic accentuation and tonal inflections of the words are unavoidable in the creative process.< Less
