This peice is based on a traditional lullaby from the Fukushima region. The original melody is fragmented throughout the piece, while te form and harmony are also consturucted from this song. I hope the generous-hearted lyricism of the original will give listeners some peauceful moments.  (Notice from "Hibari project" blog)
