Mambo Maderas combines the chachacha and the classical mambo with a touch of jazz. It should be played slightly faster than a chachacha and somewhat slower than a mambo. Maderas means wooden, since the piece – aside from the use of percussion – is exlusively performed by woodwind instruments.
Soprano Sax/Bb Clarinet
1-4 Percussion (Cowbell, Claves, Guiro, Conga Drums)
The choice and number of percussion instruments employed is variable: The composition can either played without any percussion or by using one, two, three or four percussion instruments.
