A very impressive composition for younger bands which is both distinctive and unique! Starts out with a slow and reflective introduction where you can actually hear the sound of the wind whispering before diving into the syncopated rhythms and powerful melodies of the allegro section. Shaffer's compositions like "Fire Dance" , "Tribal Drums" and "Stargazer" have been very popular with bands at this level, and this is very possibly his best ever!

    I really like this song. It is really a challenge for 6th graders, and the fast part, it is pretty cool, And the slow part is pretty hard to play, but practice makes perfect.
