About Luz y Sombra

It was my intention to write a pasodoble that can be played by younger groups, but at the same time maintain the essence of a more challenging pieces. I have been exposed to pasodobles most of my life, mainly through the mariachi groups that I have been a part of, and I can say that the pasodoble is my favorite style of march. This is a great piece to introduce your students to the world of the pasodoble. I hope you enjoy it!
