A famous Mexican folk dance (Veracruz), sometimes "renamed" also as a Sicilian Tarantella, in my arrangement for classical guitar. Thanks to my friend Alejandro Grace Ararat who suggested me to make this arrangement, dedicated to him.

Excellent! You have brought a lot of movement and excitement to this old chestnut! Although I have heard this melody many times before, I don't think I have ever enjoyed it as much as today.
