Inspired by Balkan party music, Salamanca channels the funky rhythms and model melodies that make this style so identifiable. With challenging intricate mallet parts and interlocking rhythmic patterns, this piece is sure to please players and audiences alike. Salamanca was commissioned by our good friend Nikki Turner, a hugely influential percussionist and teacher in the Australian music scene, and we dedicate it to her with much love and gratitude!
