This composition is an happy song (in C major, yeah !), in 7/8 meter.
The groove came up after I spent some times studying 2 different things: cuban music on one side, with the typical anticipation of the harmony by the bass line (Tumbao), and some arabic rhythms in odd meters. Blending the two concepts, I started to build grooves with anticipated bass lines in odd meters.
We recorded this song with María Tejada, on the album “Una Vez” … you can buy it in digital format HERE.
Here the version of the album, and the chart in slide-show and PDF downloadable format. Enjoy !
