About El Bandido de Zamora
El Bandido de Zamora (translated as The Bandit of Zamora) is a "tongue in cheek" march which uses idiomatic Spanish march rhythms, harmonies and tone colors and alternates frequently between duple and triple meters. The percussion section has plenty to do with tambourine, castanets, xylophone, chimes, bells, snare, cymbals, bass drum and timpani. It is Grade 3, or medium difficulty, but sounds more difficult than it really is. Marcus Neiman's Sounds of Sousa Band has performed this on several concerts. An authentic sounding Spanish march, "The Bandit of Zamora" offers a few fresh twists to the standard march form, including changing between 3/4 and 2/4 meter and a very tasty percussion solo. Tuneful melodies and wonderful dynamic contrast make this a real winner.
