Fairuz, who choreographed the movement for the performance shared that Kira! is based on Malay proverbs and was written by Dr Tracy Wong, who also led the performance. Wong is a Malaysian based in Ontario, Canada and is a choral conductor, music educator, vocalist, pianist and composer.

As the name of the piece would suggest, the three-part treble choir has the group counting in Malay in the piece, from 1 until 8 to be exact.
