Product Details


Two traditional mariachi tunes, "Alá en el Rancho Grande" and "La Adelita," along with a new original, "Polka de San Antonio" by John Nieto, form a fabulous medley for any happy occasion---any fiesta. As the title (translated "The Festival of Strings") indicates, make it a party! In 2/4 and first position with some chromatic alterations, this piece is accessible and fun to play. The rhythmic pulse continues throughout this exciting piece.
