Story of the creation :
WEST MEETS EAST Series of Songs and Film Music
RICHARD STOKER has written the lyrics and music for SWING SONG for the outstanding Indian master of the flutes, “ FluteFreedom” ( VINOD MOOGI.) Out of numerous compositions for their WEST MEETS EAST series, this has given the composer and lyricist the most pleasure to create. Its title, SWING SONG, has a double meaning: using a jazz rhythm, and swinging up and down on a swing.
Sincere thanks to all the following friends for the Video shoot :
I would also like to thank all my friends who directly or indirectly helped me in making this video
Swing song - swing sing, swing it up and down,
Swing it: let's get rhythm, let's get rhythm,
Swing singing, swing swing swinging,
Swing song - swing sing swing up and down,
Swing - don't give up let's go.
(Lyrics and Music by Richard Stoker)
