About This Work

Composer:  Pedro Giraudo 

Description: Duende del Mate (The Dwarf of the Mate)
Mate (pronounced mah’-tay) is a bitter tea that is much loved in Argentina and neighboring countries. Its ingredients are few: mate leaves, and water. The mate is sipped from a dried gourd through una bombilla, a metal straw. I am an avid mate drinker. For no reason I can explain, on some days my mate is delicious and other days barely drinkable. So I imagine this mythical creature, the "duende" (dwarf) of the mate: if he's around, my mate will be great; if he's not, I might as well drink coffee. This playful tune is an invocation to this creature. Difficulty: Intermediate/Advanced Harmony: tonal Meter: 6/8 Solos: Trumpet 3 & Tenor Sax 2
