Book on Goan music, a tribute from a grandson


Joao Paulo Cota <joao_cota at hotmail.com> emailed to say: “Following my recent trip to Goa, mostly for the centenary celebrations of my late grandfather, Maestro Jose Santana Cota, please find attached three tracks which are at the back of the book the Cota family has produced in his memory. Sobit Sundori is a folk piece and it is about a village milkmaid who sells milk door-to-door. Marcha de Santa Cruz and Serenade are two pieces for the brass band that he specifically composed for his “Banda de Santa Cruz”, the brass band he formed in 1929 and that is still active today! I am playing the flute track for the Sobit Sundori and the other two pieces were generated electronically using the Sibelius 4 musical software. The book Sobit Sundori I is available for sale in music shops in India.” Okay, got to get that one….
