Eduardo Galeano has made an evocative encapsulation of a story from Kadiweu mythology about the origin of the colors of birds. This creation story is full of magical realism, talking animals and the blood of a martyred child. The music serves to enhance the mystery, wandering consonantly, but without a true key center. It is a world full of fourths and fifths, and the harmony often finds a pocket of tonality before skating off again, searching elsewhere. The piece finally comes to rest on E-flat, but even then there are extra notes, casting shadows. Nothing seems truly resolved. Nothing seems truly explained.
