The title and inspiration of “Song So Old” for piano solo came from the text of a Navajo Native American song called Coyote Songs. This song was sung to dispel unwelcome spirits at the Navajo Enemy Way ceremony. The syllables of the text have no meaning; instead they reproduce the barking of coyotes and the hoot of owls: “heya heya heya a yo ho yo ho yaha” and etc. Song So Old was co-commissioned by the Elaine and Richard Fohr Foundation and Kevin Lee Sun. — Hyo-shin Na
