Programme Notes / Performance Details :

An exciting percussion ensemble piece evoking sounds of the Middle East. Various different modes are used, along with techniques for various hand percussion instruments. Changing time signatures with grooving battery parts are prevalent, along with good melodic writing in the mallet parts. Great opportunities for improvisation in the Vibraphone and hand drum parts. Playable by 11 players, more can double up on instruments like shakers, Udu drums, and other hand drums.
