This work shows in some ways the influences of many kinds of music in the performance of three Venezuelan musical rhythm genres. Each one of its three movements show a characteristic genre belonging to the traditional Venezuelan music melted with a particular characteristic of a foreign music (harmony, style, etc.), Thus, in the first movement Merengue is written in a strong 5/8 pattern characteristic of this genre, with a harmony reflected in some moments of the French flute school works for this same format (flute and piano) on the beginning of the XX century, during the born of the Impresionism. The second movement Canción de Cuna (a kind of Lullaby) reflects the universal singing for our children, for their dreams and for their future. Written in a 3/4 pattern, has the same French influence on its harmonization. The third movement Joropo is written in a 3/8 pattern in which a strong dance character is emphasized fusion with a jazz swing.
