The Water Bearer

I saw this breathtaking photograph a few months ago. It depicts a way of life that is so different to what I know. It inspired me to compose this piece – I gave it the title ‘The Water Bearer. I hope that my music has somehow captured the essence of what I think this woman’s daily life must have been like.
