This fresh, new, original composition is accurately representative of Brazilian rhythm and style. The bass line drives the rhythm throughout and features a nice mix of mallets, LVs, and ringing. The engaging melody in the treble bells flows nicely and is offset by perfectly written counter-melody in both bells and handchimes. Occasional malleted sections in the battery with a few mallet rolls, mart-lifts and RT compliment the bass line. This a thoroughly sophisticated, delightful piece that will provide a rewarding challenge for your Bronze group – and will delight the audience!
