Alice Gomez has gained international recognition for her Latino and Native American influenced compositions. She grew up in San Antonio, Texas, a city rich in cultural diversity, playing the drums in my father's Latin dance band. As a composer, her goal is to create works that capture the true spirit of ethnicity and communicate it in contemporary musical language. In creating new works, she strives to preserve and promote the traditions of her Hispanic culture, as well as those of the many other cultures that she embraces.

This piece was my first public performance piece back in high school. It's been with me ever since and is a good go to at social events. Definitely a crowd pleaser and so fun to play.

Classic tune- A must have

Comments:

This tune is excellent for pedagogical purposes and also a crowd favorite in marimba concerts. I have used it many times in concert to clear the pallet after a more heavy piece of marimba literature.

Rain Dance

Comments:

This piece has enough brightness at the beginning and end to challenge the intermediate student but not overwhelm. The legato center section is a good place for the player to put themselves into the piece and communicate their own musicality.
