hi everyone! this is a submission for arts review only. Dr. Kakkis is my uncle-I am very proud to bear his name (with an extra “e”). congrats on the youth arts festival in its first year. thank you for the vision to keep creativity alive for teens!!
“Bossa Nova” is a piece I wrote for my cello playing friends yet we can’t get together right now, so I’m playing the six parts. During isolation, getting creative has given me a stronghold in a turbulent time. This piece has a bit of a Latin feel to it, with images of relaxing Brazilian-style. My hope was to bring out some fun and humor. Hope you enjoy! -ES
