    Does anyone have a little sample answer on the question to describe some of the Mexican influences evident in sea changes?

      mariachi band

      death iconography

      Mexican instruments-maracas

      high pitched notes to show the intensity of the hot sun

      canon between violin and marimba in honour of conlon nancarrow (a famous mexican composer famous for his canon writing)

      just talk about their preoccupation with death so the use of the dance macabre rhythm

      the instruments used like the marachi band, maraccas guiro and the guitar like sound from the strumming on the violin and cello
