Earth Tell My Eager Hands
This song is about one of the most archaic symbiosis between human mankind and the earth. The peasants humble plea to his lands, to provide for his people, ready to work with his hands and in his sweat. I started with piano and voice building the structure and atmosphere of the song. Mauro came up with a great arrangement, based on electronic grooves, sampling different objects to recreate the sound of working the land. Natalie gave nice trumpet parts, lightening up the mood of the plea in an almost New Orleans marching band spirit. Msafiri wrote a beautiful poem in his language (complementary to my lyrics) recorded his voice, speaking and chanting. And here it is : our tribute to the infinite force of the earth and how we are intertwined therein.
