para marimba y dos percusionistas | for marimba and two percussionists
"Quinde" originally composed for marimba and two percussionists in July 2016, Quito, Ecuador.
This work describes the flight of an emblematic traditional bird in Ecuadorian fauna: the hummingbird, also known as Quinde (derived from the Quichua language: Quindi).
By utilizing the technical capabilities of the contemporary marimba, it showcases the virtuosity of the performer while narrating the daily life of this incredible bird. Nature, always in close proximity to the bird, transforms its existence into a mosaic of atmospheres.
