Program Notes

Danzas takes a journey through the colorful and unique musical traditions in Cuban folklore. Heavily influenced by Afro-Cuban heritage and diaspora, this work sets to celebrate and honor its rich music history.

This collage of styles starts its tribute with a musical tradition that began in West Africa and migrated to Cuba, the bembé. The bembé is traditionally in 6/8 and was introduced to the world by the Yorubá people. This work quickly travels through other important folkloric fusions, such as the songo, a section inspired by colonial Cuba, and a dream-like son, or song.

This work is dedicated to my Cuban grandparents, Ireneo and Onelia Santos.
