Guatemaya (for Marimba Duet)
Guatemaya is a four-movement composition for marimba duet that is influenced by Guatemalan marimba music and Mayan music, hence the title.
I. Puerto Barrios - This movement has a Caribbean influence, as Puerto Barrios is Guatemala's major Eastern port city.
II. Tikai - Tikai is an ancient Mayan city. Mayan music greatly influences this movement. Many of the sounds of Mayan music are produce by drums and flutes. This movement uses only the marimbas to capture these sounds.
III. Lake Atitlan - This lake in the Guatemalan highlands, allows no outflow to other bodies of water. Its deep blue color is the inspiration for the rich harmonies of this movement.
IV. Chichicastenango - This Guatemalan city is famous for its marketplace and festive Mayan music. This movement incorporates quotes from a folk song of the same name.
