Inspired by the joyous optimism of the Kenyan people, this energetic greeting prelude for string orchestra will delight performers and audiences alike with its rhythmic drive and call-and-response echoes. Paul Basler's Kenyan-influenced compositions use call-and-response and motivic manipulation as organizational methods. He reinforces specific pitches by using them frequently and stressing them metrically and rhythmically---using syncopation, regrouping of beats, and changing meter.
