Since the beginning of time, man has used fire for survival, technological advances, and ceremonies. The Polynesians dance with sticks of fire in exciting luaus; Bulgarians have a traditional barefoot dance on hot, glowing embers; and other cultures use
All quarter notes and eighth notes should be slightly detached and accented. Dotted notes are more legato and held their full value. Keep the feel of the music light so the intricate rhythms come through. Most of the piece is felt in 4 with an extended fourth beat. Measures 57-64 are felt in 3.

    Great piece to learn 9/8 ala Brubeck. Students love the energy & flow while learning a jazzy way of counting 9/8. This was one of their favorites this year.
