Written for the Santan Junior High percussion class (Chandler, AZ), Clouds Make Songo Away is designed to be a flexible composition for early percussion programs or schools that desire to introduce students to percussion ensemble. It exposes students to traditional characteristics of the Cuban songo style, includes brief solo statements for multiple players within a comfortable ensemble groove, and inserts a little call-and-response between the drums and mallet player hand claps, linking repetitions of the catchy and fun tune. The piece can be performed with a range of players and uses instruments commonly found in a school band room.
