Three beautiful tunes in an easy medley! Songs of Mexico is a set of three traditional Mexican folk songs arranged by Bob Phillips for beginning string orchestra. The entire piece can be played on the D and A strings for violins, violas, and cellos, while basses play on the D and G strings. A la Rorro Niño (to the boy/special/darling child) is an infant slumber song. Un Elefante Se Balanceaba (one elephant was balancing) is about an elephant balancing on a spider web with more elephants joining as the song progresses; for example, the second verse would be two elephants, the third verse would be three elephants, and so on. Luz de la Mañana (morning light) is a children's song about morning. (2:05) Correlates to Sound Innovations, Book 1, Level 4.
