The three pieces in Moonlight Dances were composed in 1984, 1990 and 1993 respectively. The sources of my inspiration were folktale stories in Nigeria. The first piece opens with a call-and-response... More > pattern between the right and left hand. The dance element in this piece is most vivid in the sections conjoining the triple and duple rhythmic patterns. The second piece, though moderate in tempo is slightly complex than the former. The third piece was composed in Lagos in 1984. It is an exciting and captivating lively piece of music interlaced with all sorts of dramatic nuances using wider registers of both the right and left hand. It is interesting to note the dramatic usage of the number 3 in this collection, as exemplified in (1) the three movements of the piano work; (2) three different keys ascending in thirds, (3) from C major in the first movement to E-flat in the second movement, and finally finding repose in G major in the last movement.< Less

Memoirs of Childhood was composed in Nigeria in 1993. The first piece, Lullaby, suggests a cradle song a mother would sing to rock her child to sleep. The ‘rocking’ imagery of a lullaby... More > can be heard in the basic pulsation of the rhythmic patterns in the bass, while the melodic line in the right hand bears the song. The second piece, Supplication, depicts a mood of prayer. It reminisces one of the most important task of mothers when raising their children. Most mothers pray for their children to grow up and become great men and women in the society. The introduction of this piece with half notes in the first two measures represents a gradual walk to the presence of God in prayer. Lullaby and Supplication are based on pentatonic scale, one of the modes of traditional music in Nigeria. The melodic contours of these two pieces have been influenced by Yoruba language. Highlife Jump is the last piece. It is constructed in the style of highlife music, popular dance band music in West Africa.< Less
