Los musiniños encuentran un tesoro (The Musiniños Find a Treasure) is a series of 5 solo works for different instruments. All explore some aspect of Cuban music. They were originally created for children between the ages of 9 and 14 years of age, but can also be performed by more seasoned musicians. I included in the title the made up word: “musiniños,” which comes from the union of the two words “música” (music) and “niños” (children); its made up meaning is: niños que hacen música (children that make music).
These pieces were created as part of an Artist Residency supported by AECID and FONCA, and premiered in Mexico DF in December of 2009.
