about

perhaps peace is something that happens when all people have access to the essentials of human life, starting with fresh water, food, shelter and energy, and the knowledge coming generations will have these things too.

'aquassembly' represents a vision for a gathering of all peoples for a global 'water council'. the rock elm of Parc Jarry in Montréal symbolizes the resilience we must continue to cultivate.

the song features Chorale Casa Nostra (merci Mama Dirce!), Jordan Strum on bass, and the intricate and weaving percussion of Yann Morelli-Bernard on the gotta, an instrument he designed and built himself.

lyrics

she's waiting for a light that'll shine her all the way
he's waiting for a song that'll make the people radiate
standing beside both of them i wish that i could say
something in this morning air tells me we're not far away

~

we march we walk we wander together
the songs we sing for water are our feathers
our voices fly above the world and fall on us like rain
aquassembly called towards the centre

we march we walk we wander together
parade bands hold the rhythm as we gather
our hearts become the drums which speak our unity
aquassembly called towards the centre

on marche on va on ère ensemble
nos voix sont les plumes de nos ancêtres
volantes elles retombent en pluie sacré
on se rencontre pour être aquassemblé

on marche on va on ère ensemble
la fanfare bat le rhythme de nos coeurs
au son des tambours on sent notre unité
on se rencontre pour être aquassemblé
