I wrote this piece following a tour in Andalusia. When I was in cordoba, the flutist Wendela van Swol  encouraged me to write a new piece for flute and piano. Arrived at home, I was inspired by a melody that I found in one of my godmother old books. This book belonged to her father: a talented amateur musician, traveller and collector from Scotland.

From that moment, I began to create sections for the piece, based on Andalusian forms such as the Rumba and Soleá.
I premiered this composition in concert in Valladolid in January 2017 with pianist Mario Rosado.
