All we Twa Tanbou fans are sure to be pleased with Sydney Guillaume’s latest. The title, meaning “wow,” aptly describes the character of the piece. Filled with Guillaume’s characteristic “doums,” “ways,” and “di-pops,” the rhythmic impetus is infectious. The Haitian text, written by the composer’s father, jubilantly imagines a world without conflict.
