“Hello Francis” is a tribute to Francis Bebey – singer, composer, guitarist, musicologist, writer and dear friend who was born in Douala, Cameroon in 1929 and died in Paris, France in 2001. The piece is based on the Makossa, a popular dance rhythm from Cameroon often used by Francis, and includes a quote from his piece The Magic Box and a hidden bit of J.S. Bach. – John Williams
