This is a fun, energetic ABA piece based around simple duple feel. There are ample opportunities for students to learn about counting, vertical alignment of notes, phrasing, shaping and other basic musical nuances. The Afro Cuban feel offers an opportunity to explore different cultures while keeping it simple and the drum set solo is simply a blast! Battery features moments for each section shine!

Sales and Licensing Information:
The shows are to be used for one competitive season (either indoor or marching). If a group wants to use the work beyond that in any fashion, whether competitive or not, additional permission will be required from Licks and Kicks Music in advance.
All licenses are issued on a first come, first served basis. Licks and Kicks Music reserve the right to sell/license any and all content, including Licensee purchases, to other Licensees for shows/contests/performances that are not specifically listed on your checkout form.
Licks and Kicks Music bases our Regional Exclusivity on the competition circuits that each group competes in. We rely heavily on the information that our customers provide to us in order to accurately report circuits they plan to attend. This includes local circuits, national circuits, and local shows, contests, and competitions that are not sanctioned by a circuit.
We will not sell/license the same piece or show to more than ONE group in any given local circuit, national circuit, or local show/contest/competition. For national circuits, such as BOA or WGI, we will not sell/license the same piece or show to more than ONE group for specific regional or championship locations. This is why it is extremely important that each and every customer accurately reports to us their circuit participation information to guarantee regional exclusivity for everyone.
The Licensee shall provide the complete information of each Contest Performance where Licensee will be performing prior to purchase by completing all fields of the checkout form on the website. Contest Performance exclusivity is only guaranteed once completed information is received and approved by Licks and Kicks Music staff. This will allow Licks and Kicks Music to track each Licensee at all Competitions to ensure the exclusive use by Licensee.
Licks and Kicks Music will not take any financial responsibility for groups who perform shows outside of the information they provided to us at the time of their purchase, or to any group who has an infringing group competing in the same show or circuit with an authorized Licks and Kicks Music license. Any break in exclusivity due to the a change of plans for any given group, without written consent from Licks and Kicks Music, is the sole responsibility of the offending group or organization. Licks and Kicks Music always makes every attempt to contact the group ahead of time and work with both groups if we are alerted to this situation, but we do not guarantee resolution or action.
Exclusivity is not available to the Licensee for shows/contests/competitions that require bracketed regional participation for advancement into other shows/contests/competitions.
Payment must be made online via credit card or PayPal, or via Purchase Order. Payment (or guaranteed payment in the case of a Purchase Order) must be received before you will be able to download your purchase(s). Flexible payment options may be available, but must be approved by Licks and Kicks Music in advance of purchase.
Licks and Kicks Music is unable to offer refunds on any of our items. Our music pieces and shows include regional exclusivity, which means we have licensed those individual pieces and/or shows to a specific customer in their area, therefore declining purchases from other groups who wanted to purchase the licensing for the same pieces and/or shows in the same region.
