PUBLISHER: Presser
ED/ARR: n/a

DESCRIPTION: The title Fanmi Imèn is Haitian Creole for Maya Angelou's famous work, Human Family.  Both the musical and literary poems acknowledge difference within mankind, either due to ethnicity, background, or geography, but Angelou's refrain: "we are more alike, my friends, than we are unlike," reaffirms our humanity as a reminder of unity. Coleman's work draws inspiration from French flute music blending with an underlying pentatonicism found in Asian traditions, a caravan through Middle Eastern parts of the world merging with Flamenco, and an upbeat journey southward into Africa with the sounds of Kalimba (thumb piano), Fanmi Imèn was commissioned by the National Flute Association for its 2018 High School Soloist Competition.
