About the song

Written by Moises Simons

Arranged by Bill Moffit


Listed in the US National Recording Registry, as "the first American recording of an authentic Latin dance style. ... introducing U.S. listeners to Cuban percussion instruments and Cuban rhythms."


Instrumentation requirements

Tune the front line. The parts are a little high and tend to stay there.

Roadmap

Balance plays a key part in this tune as both the bass line and the front line parts are an ostenato for much of the piece.
