Calling All Dawns is a song-cycle in three movements: day, night and dawn. Each movement corresponds to a different phase of life--life, death, and rebirth. There are songs of joy, mystery, and hardship, reflecting the complexity of our mortality. There are songs of the deepest, darkest sorrow to accompany us through death. And finally, there are songs of triumph and exultation that bring us roaring back to life, beginning the cycle anew.
"Calling All Dawns was born from the desire to turn my popular piece 'Baba Yetu' into a full album-length work, that celebrated different languages, cultures, and religions, and celebrated the commonalities that connect people to one another."
