I hope everyone knows Ivan Trevino’s music! If not, visit his website or YouTube and start listening. (Watch Catching Shadows (Marimba Duo)). Crossroads for marimba and cajon, was written for Bryce Turner.

Ivan’s says that Crossroads is an intersection of rhythmic complexity and melodic simplicity. Throughout the piece, the two players share complex unison rhythms. At times, the cajón player also plays deskbells with feet.

Bryce and Ivan were born in the small Texas town of Victoria, known as “The Crossroads” of South Texas.
