The piece is inspired by a character of the Thai epic “Ramakien (Ramayana), and Hanuman is one of the main character. A powerful monkey and also the chief of Praram’s army, he is the son of the Wind God and an immortal. For Thai culture, Hanuman is a symbol of smartness, courage, fun anda Casanova (he has over 5,000 wives). The theme is generated on 3 notes: Bb, C, Eb, and developed using augmentation, dimination and variation. Minor pentatonic scale is used in this piece with combination of the Blups scale. The 3 notes, which is the main idea, appear throughout the piece.
