The work for piano trio was conceived trough the first months of 2016. The piece was premiered on April 23, 2016 in the Arts Club of Washington DC, in honor to the celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of the institution. The pulsate energy that defines the piece, is driven by highly syncopated rhythms creating the Caribbean rhythmic aesthetic. It used the “Yubá”, from the Puerto Rican Bomba and some details of the “Batá” music from Cuba. They are simultaneously combined for the creation of the real Caribbean aesthethic. The contrasting section of Celebration alludes to the traditional dances in Puerto Rico in the 17 and 18 century, the danza puertorriqueña.
Premiere April 23, 2016, at the Arts Club of Washington DC in Washington, DC.
