Stuart P. O’Neil’s piece Nzuri Mwana is a work inspired by the rhythms and musical textures of Africa. Featuring a flute soloist who carries the melody throughout the piece, the accompanying percussion parts help provide an intensely joyful and energetic backdrop for the flute’s soaring melody. In Swahali, nzuri mwana means “good son,” a title which is fitting given that O'Neil has dedicated the piece to his son.

Nzuri Mwana comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
