Album Review
Chuan-Mei Lee
Reviewed 2005-01-06 
1. Cheerful flute, drumming. Noise of fireworks fizzing in the background adds color. Mid tempo. (2:31)
2. Bright sounds of the marimba (like the xylophone). Fast tempo. (2:28)
*3. Voices accompanied by harp, guitar, violin. A mellow but lilting lullaby. Slow tempo. (1:46)
4. A dance tune. Another marimba selection. Fast tempo. (2:40)
*5. Pretty peals of harp and guitar. Some quiet background noise of voices and laughter. Mid-tempo. (2:19)
6. More festive marimba music. Like a march or circus music. Mid tempo. (3:14)
7. Excerpt of a ritual. Chanting voices in prayer accompanied by rattle, harp, guitar. Mid-slow tempo. (3:33)
8. Similar flute melody, drumming rhythm as track #1 (w/o firework noises). Mid tempo. (2:07)
9. Sounds of merrymaking. Brass band, drumming, firecracker/background noises. Transition ~1:36 to tambourine, guitar, singing. Transition ~3:45 to back to brass band. Fast tempo. (5:15)
10. Male voice accompanied by guitar. Slow tempo. (3:12)
*11. “Happy Tune.” Brass band, sax, drumming, percussion. Fast tempo. (2:50)
*12. Lilting flute. Sonorous drumming. Mid-fast tempo. (2:14)
