The rhythmic patterns and phrases at times insinuate the cadences of bolero and the cha cha cha. Arrecife (Arrecife) is the name of the rock formation that surrounds many Cuban coastlines. It is a sharp, dented and rough surface where marine species seek refuge. This is the most jazz-influenced movement. Suite Antillas was commissioned by the famous Beijing Guitar Duo (Wang Yameng and Su Meng).
