****2: 1:45 percussion instrumental then male chorus wailing
****3: 6:44 marimba solo intro then more mellow but driving percussion with clarinet
****4: 6:26 faster percussion, mellow and low but a driving rhythm 15 sec fade.
****5: 5:34 driving bass line, collage of percussion, haunting clarinet.
****6: 4:37 faster, big percussion, clarinet, marimbas, male vocal wail
