Program Notes

Prismas is originally the third and final movement of Albores (1999); the piece was premiered by the Mexican percussion group Tambuco in Bogota Colombia. Psismas is based on the style of a currulao (a 6/8 Colombian music consisting of marimba, drums and voice) from the Pacific region of Colombia. The MSU Percussion Ensemble has added a bomba drum and Joropo-style maracas to the original marimba quartet to create a unique style and arrangement of Claudia Calderón's Prismas.
