Xorotramao (1998) is a piece inspired by the most polyrhythmic character of the Venezuelan folk genre “joropo”; The title is a mixture of two words: xoropo, the antique spelling of this energetic and exuberant musical genre; and tramao, the Spanish translation for “weave.” This original work displays a two-part introduction with syncopated and melancholic melodies, followed by a tight counterpoint with a twist of homophonic passages. Xorotramao was composed in 1998 for the former Miquirebo-Venezuelan Flute Quartet, and it premiered in 2002 at the School of Music-Chamichian Hall in Central Michigan University.
