    Hello people of TM!
    For my music class at school, I Have to play music of another culture. And I really wanted to find a great either solo classical or Latin trunpet piece. Unfortunately the choice are small because It has to be traditional to a country. Do you guys have and suggestions? It would be great if it was challenging etc aswell.

    thanks alot.

    Australia is quite a multiculti country. You should have plenty of sources at your front door. Or rather, on the other side of your front door and away from your computer. ;-)

    For anyone wanting to help you with suggestions, it would be helpful if you could tell us:
    - what level a player you are, (for example do you use ABRSM level grades?).
    - what kind of accompaniment you intend to use and what level of musicianship you can expect from the accompaniment.
    - how much time do you have to prepare?

    Unfortunately I've never done grades... I think approximately I was told I would be an 8? If that helps haha.

    Also, there really isn't much chance for accompaniment. Other than drums and an alright guitarist.

    And I know that there is a large amount of culture in Australia, but it has to be traditional. And traditional Australian is aboriginal.

    I think that what would be most fun to do would be mariachi, but I myself have no experience.

    Thankyou for the help! :) :):):)

    Try some of the traditional Bavarian7Austrian tunes, like Andachtsjodler or Erzherzog-Johann-Jodler. Very traditional indeed, and usually played on trumpet in traditional folk music. You might also try some of the Scottish Highland Songs by Robert Burns - starting with the De'il's awa wi' th' Exciseman and then My Heart's in the Highlands. Readily available on the web, and don't really need any accompaniment.
