This painting is part of an online exhibit at Lark & Key Gallery called Lyrical. It is inspired by the song "Djorolen" by Malian Wassoulou musician Oumou Sangaré. The words are translated to:

The worried songbird,
Cries out in the forest,
The worried songbird,
Her thoughts go far away,
The worried songbird,
cries out in the forest,
The worried songbird,
Her thoughts go far away,
For those of us who have no father,
Her thoughts go out to them.
