A trip to Polynesia inspired Dave and Jean Perry to compose this authentic-sounding choral work based on the traditional rhythms and harmonies of the South Pacific. It's a cross-cultural number written especially for young and developing choral groups. There are opportunities for soloists on several brief, optional solos. Add percussion to make it even more genuine; percussion parts are included in the publication. Or use the lively SoundTrax CD. P.S.: "Ia Ora" means "hello." Included on Sally's "In the Spotlight!"
