Colombia is a tropical country in which Amerindian, Hispanic and African cultures converged, generating a phenomenon of intense cultural interaction throughout the centruies; this allowed our music and dances to develop great diversity as they settled into the different regions of the country. In our book we wish to highlight several important Colombian genres hoping this will help flutists rhythmic awareness and knowledge of genres grow stronger and richer.
Flutist will feel the benefits of playing with a guitar and percussion accompaniment specially written to bring forth the various characters of Columbian styles. The interaction between flute and guitar in these pieces aims to train proper musical reflexes, by gradually improving intonation, technique and musicianship.
This book of pieces should also increase the performer's recognition of basic tonal harmonic regions, as it brings out the musical wealth offered by Colombia's musical diversity, making it accessible to flutists of all ages.
“Columbian composer and flutist Carmen Liliana Marulanda absorbed the musical roots of her country at a young age. Her entire artistic and educational trajectory expresses essential links to these traditions. This book is a collection of studies for flute, piano and percussion based on Colombian genres.
“The ingenuity of this work, is to provide a pre-recorded musical accompaniment on Mp3 (to download) giving the flute student a tool to practice basic exercises in a simple yet varied and challenging musical context. The dialogue between teaching and Columbian musical tradition is rooted in ancient musical practices: learning in real harmonic and rhythmical contexts.”
