Originally for piano solo, Zeltsman adapted this for marimba duo (one low-E and one low-C marimba). She recorded it with Jack Van Geem on their duo CD, Pedro and Olga Learn to Dance. With a quick tempo, it has a airy, light feel with intermittent splashes of excitement and a dramatic ending. A focal point of the piece is the playful alternations and juxtapositions of "6/8" and "3/4" rhythmic phrasing.
