Fuerza Negra by Francisco Perez is a medium-difficulty percussion ensemble tune. The piece is characterized by an unstoppable groove, which draws from the rhythms and harmonies of Latin, pop, and rock music. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser for any occasion!

Regarding the Spanish title, Perez explains a double meaning. Firstly, it’s a nod to the commissioning ensemble’s school mascot, the Northwestern State University Demons. Additionally, through the translation “Black strength and energy,” it’s a humble tribute and show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
