El rio composed by Diana V. Saez. For SA choir and piano. Janet Galvan Roots & Wings Series. Concert, General, Multicultural. Octavo. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.15-2837R).
Diana Saez has become one of the leading arrangers of stylistically authentic music from South America, and this traditional song from the Andes Mountains of Peru is another fine example. With a piano part that beautifully captures the spirit of a Latin American guitar and vocal lines that are both tuneful and rhythmic, young singers will be delighted by this lovely folk song.
