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 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.
