WE FLY A KITE

track info

 •The words to We Fly A Kite were written by Valerie Gillies, former Edinburgh Makar. Valerie is an amazing poet and you see more of her work at www.valeriegillies.com
• We recorded Margaret Bennett's vocals for We Fly A Kite in her house in Ochtertyre in 2009. We took a lot of inspiration from Margaret's son Martyn Bennett, a master of putting huge beats behind delicate voices. 
• The huge choir of children at the very end of the song was originally meant to be used in the Everything is New film, but didn't quite fit. We called it the 'Anjali' choir, in honour of the little girl who appears at the end of the film.
