This book is about the nighttime hours on the water of the enslaved in Suriname. The design of the book takes you on a journey, where you imagine yourself in the different phases of the night. The enslaved spent hours on the water rowing their boats: during that time they rehearsed new songs with critical comments about the masters. The songs are sung using a call-and-response technique where one person takes the lead and the rest respond. It was a new way to create cultural elements and feel powerful.
