MB Legislature Noon-hour Concert

The Matheson Island School Fiddlers performing in 2013

This gentle original setting of an eleventh-century Japanese text captures the mystery and flavor of ancient Japan and frames the middle section, which is in English. Haunting melodies and simple harmonies are complemented by optional chime tree and rain stick for a distinctly Asian mood. (

African proverb: Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba
