A huapango is a traditional Mexican folk dance with juxtaposed meters of 3/4 and 6/8. This dance features fast steps by the dancers whose clicking heels, much like the steps of flamenco dancers, are not just part of the dance but are actually considered a part of the musical composition itself. Left-hand finger-tapping on cello tops representing the staccato of dancers' heel clicks, and violins strummed guitar style all come together in a Norteno-style huapango. This full orchestra version of the original string piece adds the colors of the winds and percussion to the original string orchestra version. It is written for piccolo; pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets in A, bassoons, four French horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, snare drum, bass drum, suspended cymbals, claves, castanets, and strings (8, 8, 6, 6, 3).
