This is my entry to this competition. As opposed to doing a traditional interpretation wherein the full original melody is kept as the central theme of the song, I instead decided to write my own version of a “dance” song while still utilizing bits and pieces of the original melody. The result is an upbeat, pop-ish, and slightly modern instrumental song that uses melodic fragments from the original polska to augment the melodies and the arrangement. I also had my friends Rups and Ezequiel help with producing the backing track. It’s a bit of a risky entry since I changed a lot, but I hope you guys like it! Note that the main video is my live take and that I cut off the delay trails in the end of the vid to stay within the time limit haha
