Two Brazilian Steel Dances by Ney Rosauro

Ney Rosauro is a Brazilian percussionist and composer who has written a lot of great percussion music. I first learned about his music when I played his Marimba Concerto No. 1 on my senior recital. This is a new piece for steel drum band that was commissioned and premiered by Dr. John Wooton and the SMU Steel Band.

For more information about the piece, visit Ney Rosauro’s website.
