This simple text can be interpreted in many ways. Some of the themes mentioned included personal growth and passing away. The central message that I intended to communicate is that of community, of the necessity of relying on each other to achieve our dreams. There may be times when we have to “fly” on our own, but ultimately our greatest strength is born of our unity. The djembe player is encouraged to embellish the given rhythm per the idiom of the instrument. Adding additional percussion is also encouraged. 

Percussion part is for djembe.
