Full of rich and unique colors, butterflies dance and weave in syncopated rhythms within the work, while alternating between the feel of 3 over 4 throughout. The slower sections pay homage to the beautiful and sorrowful sounds in the style of Yaravi, a Peruvian lament song. The melodies and rhythm eventually begin to evolve into the spirit and syncopation of Argentinian concert tango, and the end returns to the feel of Yaravi.
