For string quartet, zheng, and pipa. As the American-born daughter of a Peruvian woman, I had primarily long been aware of Perú’s Native American and Spanish past, and it’s only recently that I’ve begun to try to understand its twofold African legacy from the Moorish-influenced Spanish conquerors and their West African slaves. More personal to me, though, is the Asian presence due to a great-grandfather who left China in the late 1800s to open a country store in the Andean mountains. In Ritmos Anchinos (Anchino Rhythms), I embark on my first piece writing for traditional Chinese instruments. (“anchino” is a hybrid between chino (Chinese) and andino (Andean)). Three movements I. Harawi para Colquipocro II. Charangos de Chincha III. Kachampa — Gabriela Lena Frank
