What is the impact of the mix of traditional instruments and electronic sounds?   How does this opera compare with the others we have studied in class, i.e. Mozart, Verdi, Wagner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKBm9mKWJVU #5 Tania Leon “Inura” (2009) Using the vocabulary you have learned so far in the course, describe the basic characteristics of this piece.  Explain how Leòn utilizes call and response during this movement.
