Traditional, arranged by Markus Schwartz & Daniel Beaubrun
Set to the funky rhythm of "Maskawòn", the song's melody references traditional songs for Gede, the "trickster" spirit of life and eath and owner of the cemetery in Haitian Vodou cosmology. The ending celebrates our musical journey with an improvised chant.
|Lakou Brooklyn ewa||In the Brooklyn yard|

|Sa'n we la?||What do we see there?|
|Lakou Brooklyn ewa||We are in the Brooklyn yard|
|Nou la ye|
