"Surquillo" is the perfect encore piece for your violin recital. A joyous dance with a great deal of Latin American flair, widely appealing and original at once. DonÂ´t miss the chance to play this fantastic marinera! Marinera NorteÃ±a is a Peruvian courtship dance that uses handkerchiefs as a means of expression. It consists of three parts: an introduction, where the two dancers invite each other to dance, a central courtship part, â€œpaseo,â€ where the couple greet and get closer to each other, and a final and energetic part, â€œzapateo,â€ in which both dancers stomp their feet rhythmically on the floor, while they challenge each other to continue their courtship. The dance is usually performed twice. The first time it ends in a very intimate pose, while the second time it ends with the woman in a triumphant pose and the man on his knees beside her, surrendering himself to her. Marineraâ€™s music is a genre that fuses the different cultural influences of Peru: on one side, Spanish influences can be heard in the harmony, the melodic ornaments, the instrumentation and the metric structure that alternates between 3/4 and 6/8. At the same time, the use of bimodality is characteristic of Andean music. The marinera also presents African influences, especially in the use of the cajÃ³n, an African-Peruvian percussion instrument, which usually accompanies the sung Marinera. Surquillo is a piece which expands the musical possibilities of the genre, alternating between major and minor modes as well as through changes in the tonality, thus making the music less predictable. It also varies the repetition of the theme with technical devices and ornaments. "Surquillo" means "little groove" in Spanish, and is the name of the limenian neighborhood where the composer grew up.
