An unusual "tone-poem-like" piece. Written in an Afro-Cuban 12/8 feel, it features the drums throughout as the element that ties it all together. It highlights a great amount of independent non-sectional playing by the ensembe. In addition to drums, soloists include tenor and/or trumpet and trombone. This piece is accessible by bands of all skill levels and will definitely add a change of pace to any programming. Easy medium.
