Based on “Sintra”

Composed by Michael League
Performed by Snarky Puppy

This selection falls under the genre of jazz fusion. It was inspired by and written about the forests around the Portuguese town of Sintra, which contains a lot of Islamic architecture. Arco Classic (red textile, cumaru wood) hints at the sweeping, sultry orchestral tones of the first section, while Arco Fusion (yellow textile, white leather) evokes the brassier, jazzy, section B.
