Huapango de Hannah is an exciting original composition by David McKeown, arranged as a duet for two Alto Saxophones. The Huapango is a traditional Mexican style of music and dance, often mixing triple and duple metres. It is played on violin, accordion, and local 5-string variants of the guitar such as the vihuela, huapanguera and jarana. The Huapango rhythm famously inspired the song "America" in Leonard Bernstein’s "West Side Story".

If you play to an intermediate standard and upwards, then you and your audience will enjoy this piece. The mixed metres, alternating between 6/8 and 3/4, will present a rhythmic challenge, while following the precise articulation in the score will help convey the dance style of the Huapango. Huapango de Hannah has a performance time of around two minutes. You can listen to the Clarinet version of this duet by following the YouTube link above.
