Program Notes

This celebration of salsa music begins with an evocative introduction that is followed by an array of salsa rhythmic styles. Included are the mambo, the cha-cha, and the son-montuno, which differ widely. An equally wide assortment of tone colors and textures is explored. This composition is a work rich in multicultural textures.
