Batuccata, by Hugo Morales (1979)

The jawbone or "charrasca", used in many places in Latin America, is employed by Hugo Morales in Batuccata. In this piece, the composer uses a new technique: the three performers must hit the horse's jaws with sticks, first in rhythmic unison, and later in a three-voice polyrhythm.
