Potong Padi is written for an eight part a cappella mixed choir.  Based on an old Malay folksong, it portrays a sense of fun and frolic at harvest time in the rice fields.  Reaping the harvest is a time of joy and celebration for the farmers.  The first part of the song is slow and legato.  Then the contrast and the fun begins in the second part.

A full recording of the piece is found on CD-04.
