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.
