Quick Overview

Joseph Compello uses the famous Mexican folk song "La Cucaracha" as the basis for a concert fantasy. Lots of rhythmic interest and percussion, plus every section of the band gets some of the melodic material. Students interested in Mexican history will find that a little research on the song “La Cucaracha” will reveal some interesting facts about the lyrics. A strong choice for your next concert to include the music of our southern neighbors.
