Description

What has 8 legs, 61 keys, and is known as “El Loco?” ¡Higuita!, that’s what. You’ll have to read the program notes to find out why. This piece is written as a short, flashy encore piece to showcase four players sharing one marimba.

 

Composed for the British percussion quartet 4-MALITY by Stephen Whibley (BBC Concert Orchestra percussionist), ¡Higuita! is a mad-fast guaracha that will sizzle when played with groovy flair. If audiences were wowed by your concert, they’ll be doing scorpion kicks for this encore!

 

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

"If you are familiar with the high quality of rudimental music that is available from Tapspace, then "The Blue Book" collection is no surprise as it is excellent writing by some of the finest players and teachers. I congratulate Jim Campbell for his fine work as editor and as the teacher of these contributors. This book is a testament to the continued excellence of the University of Kentucky program and a tribute to its fine Professor of Percussion."
