To provide music to suit the character of the swaggering Puss and the voices of Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, composer Henry Jackman used the folk instruments of traditional Latin music. His movie score also pays homage to the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, who is best-known for his nocturne for piano and orchestra Nights in the Gardens of Spain and the ballet music for The Three-Cornered Hat. Jackman blended guitars and Latin percussion with an orchestral sound that shows the Impressionist influences of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
