Jigeria – Contemporary Irish Music for Silver Flute by Philippe Barnes
Piano score and flute part
A Celtic/Flamenco inspired piece for flute and piano.
Jigeria is a mix of Irish and Flamenco influences. My hometown of Brighton on the south coast of England was a wonderful place to grow up playing music. A city full of musicians, live music everywhere from classical to jazz, Irish to Brazilian. A fabulous guitarist/composer Paul Aguilera started a band “Candela” and asked me to join on flute. I quickly became immersed in the playingof Jorge Pardo (flute & sax player with Paco De Lucia) and fell in love with flamenco. The Buleria is a 12/8 form, which crosses over with the 6/8 of a jig. — Philippe Barnes
