Desert Echoes Flute Project Presents: Mariquilla

Desert Echoes Flute Project Presents: Mariquilla

Latin/Salsa, Classical
The two flute choirs of Desert Echoes Flute Project present a Latin music inspired program with wonderful, Spanish-influenced works by classical composers Ravel and Chabrier; one of Brazil’s most famous songs, “The Girl from Ipanema” by Antonio Carlos Jobim; the popular Lecuona “Malaguena,” and Piazolla’s well-known tango, “Oblivion”. Other pieces include a very fast and happy choro, “Tico, Tico” and a salsa written specifically for flute choir. Members play many different flutes from the very small and high piccolo to the very low 9-foot contrabass flute with C flutes, altos, and bass flutes. The program closes with all 48 flutists performing the exciting “Leyenda” by Albeniz.
