Program Notes

The music of Cuba is diverse, electric, transformative, soulful, elegant and energetic. Highly influenced by its African and European roots, Cuban music celebrates the soul and ingenuity of a nation.

Timba sets to celebrate the rich musical traditions of Cuba, starting and ending in the Bembé style. The work also celebrates the Cuban timba, a genre of music rooting from the son and salsa.

Timba was commissioned by the fantastic Allen High School Wind Ensemble (TX) under the direction of Dr. Philip Obado and premiered at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic (2022) in Chicago, Ill.
