Madrugada 

(A major, 2/4, tempo 90, 162 measures, 3 min 40 sec.)

A sort of ouverture. The inspiration for the piece is the magnificent sunrises we experience here every morning at the Port of Manadas. The piece started as a guitar improvisation. The main theme is based on a harmonization of a chromatically descending ladder: A major 7, A minor 7, B minor 7, D minor, A major 7. From measure 57 there is a hint of a slow Bossa Nova movement.
