|The Big E mp3|
The song is Ambilanao Zaho, but the way we do it, it's The Big E. Julian sings.
Mo created the mood for this song with his propulsive bass line and also wrote the lyrics. He calls it "a happy song about death and destruction". There are more than a few contrasts both in the lyrics and in the music, which is based on a song form from Zaire. The Real Audio excerpt has been edited to include the traditional break into 7/8 time near the end.
By the way, the NPR Mo is referring to is: "National Public Radio"
