From the Publisher

An Argentine peasant dance, bright up-tempo, filled with fiery energy. Winner “first prize” for newly published flute music for multiple flutes by NFA – 2000.

A milonga is one of the ancestral dance forms that helped shape the Argentine tango during the early part of the 20th Century. It is a lively often humorous dance which was heavily influenced by the African candombe as African workers settled into Buenos Aires during its economic boom in the late 19th century. Argentine peasants/soldiers, commonly called compadritos, watched African workers dance the candombe incorporating elements of the music that made the milonga more energetic and popular. This original milonga captures its traditional spirit while incorporating American popular harmonies and jazz influences.
