Program Notes

Currently, the sound aesthetics of symphonic bands in Colombia is greatly influenced by the use of traditional rhythms from different regions of the country. This has made works with languages that differ from that aesthetic not commonly interpreted.

Canicas (Marbles), a fandango, is part of a five-movement suite -- in the process of composition -- entitled Juegos de manos (Hand Games). Each movement will refer to a traditional Colombian rhythm, and will use a harmonic and melodic language taken from the academic music of the 20th and 21st centuries.

- Program Note by composer


The soundscape of symphonic bands in Colombia is greatly influenced by the use of traditional rhythms from different regions of the country. This has given rise to works with a unique rhythmic language that is both vibrant and exciting.

Canicas (Marbles) is part of a suite inspired by the names of five traditional Colombian games: Marbles, Yo-Yo, Pirinola, Catapiz, and Trompo, with each movement composed on a rhythm traditional of a particular region of Colombia and using harmonic and melodic language taken from the academic music of the 20th and 21st centuries.
