Huracán was composed in response to Hurricane Maria, which decimated Puerto Rico. One of my boyfriend's best friends had just given birth to her son a month prior, and then the baby had to endure this devastating storm so young.
This work's lyrics are admittedly diarrhea of the mouth. I placed myself into the mother's shoes and just wrote random words as they came to mind. The result is what you see above.
If you're a mother with young children, I would like to send you this score for free (just send me recordings and copies of your programs!). Please fill out the form below to do so.
