Teaching Concepts: trills, meter & tempo changes, independence, slur vs tongue, repeats, basic Afro-Cuban rhythm (percussion), geography/ancient history

Convey the haunting mystery of ancient sculptures discovered in the Kalahari Desert of South Central Africa with this fantastic teaching piece. Beginning with trills set against mysterious harmonies, the piece soon moves to the main theme in the trumpets later joined by a counter-melody in the flutes. The middle section provides flowing dynamic contrast before returning to the main section and the introduction-like ending. Auxillary percussion adds to the authentic flavor of the piece. Particularly suited for second-year players, Mysteries of the Kalahari will provide interesting contrast to your next program. (2:15)
