Orginal Latin Songs for Beginning String Orchestra
String ensembles will enjoy "Mimi's Minor Mambo", a dance tune inspired by the traditional Afro-Cuban music played by the Caribbean island nations' charanga ensembles. Charanga, sometimes called the grandfather of salsa, combines several European musical ideas such as harmony, instrumentation, and form with the complex rhythmic structures of Afro-Cuban music. "Sambasaurus" is inspired by Brazilian samba. Expand your skill sets by playing these two originals with your string quintet or student string orchestra.
Set includes one score and a complete set of string orchestra parts.
Note: We feel that the two pieces in this collection require a more advanced player. Some of the skills required are: syncopation, off beats, accidentals, and playing up to 5th position for violin.
