Description

Composer's Note:

"Sekelela" was commissioned by Communities Without Borders and First Unitarian Society in Newton. It was premiered by the Triple Helix Piano Trio in April, 2019. "Sekelela" means rejoice, and the five poems it incorporates are based on the writings of Zambian students who have benefited from the work of Communities Without Borders. I encountered their writing through "Sekelela Magazine," "Living Hope Magazine," and captions students had written to accompany photos they had taken of their teachers and peers. At turns funny, sad, and beautiful, these quotes had an immediacy that resonated deeply. They are specific to circumstance and universal at once, united by the common thread of hope.

The quotes are based on the writings of: Sarag Ngoma, Jennifer Lungu, Farai Mweetwa, Kaumbi Always, and Patrick Zulu along with students of the Living Hope Foundation.
