Using the Greek modes with which he is so familiar, Papadimitriou has crafted a piece around the story of "Oenanthe," a drummer and courtesan from the Saamos Island who was killed with her children by the Egyptians in 221 B.C. The result is a solo marimba work filled with exciting dance rhythms in an idiomatic setting appropriate for the intermediate marimbist.

Oenanthe is a femine name that belonged to a drum player and a courtesan from the Saamos island. She had a son named Agathocles, and a daughter named Agathoclea who was a drum player and a courtesan like her mother. Agathoclea was furnished by her mother to Ptolemy the fourth the Philopater (221-204 B. C.) who loved her deeply. So Oenanthe through her came by a complete influence on Ptolemy, essentially ruling Egypt until the people of Egypt murdered her and her children. (Plutarch States Oenanthe in his erotic 9,735 D).
