"Sundowner," the second movement to Ngoma za Kenya, is a quiet interlude, depicting that time of the day when one relaxes under a favorite tree, sipping a drink, having a bite to eat and talking with friends while the sun goes down over the African savannah. Composer Paul Basler uses a wide array of harmonic shifts and colors in this musically satisfying piece.
