This work originally conceptualized as a mime should be performed percussively with the actors/actresses acting out the diverse scenes in African society cutting across both rural and Urban alike. I strongly believe that African composers should speak Africa, reflect Africa, and promote Africa in their ethno works thus bringing classical music closer to the average African listener to help them appreciate classics in their own musical language. The midi files of this work are available on request through e-mail NB: This work is arranged in a new form I invented called the WaZoBia form, it's basically an ABC form but can be rearranged as ABA, ABCA, ABCB, AC, AB e.t.c the words in this form starting with capital letters means virtually the same thing in Hausa, Igbo, and Youruba the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria so the average individual virtually hears Nigeria in this form cos each section states a tune/sound peculiar to each of these !major groups thereby bringing classical music closer to the generality of the people.
