" In 1991 I spent a week in Grosnjan, Croatia with Evelyn and other percussionists during a summer camp. During that time I started almost as a joke, to improvise on the marimba and showed Evelyn some interesting ideas for variations on her choral " A Little Prayer". A Little Prayer is a slow choral almost in a requiem style, so i started making lively variations using many different rhythms and styles to create contrasting atmospheres. Every variation contains a different style and uses some popular rhythms from South America. Baiao, Guarania, Tango Maracatu and Valse are among the rhythms portrayed in the comparison. Later on I transcribed those variations and dedicated the piece to the great marimba player Katarzyna Mycka."
