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.


All percussion sounds used in this recording were generated from Virtual Drumline software also by Tapspace.

"WOW!! I’ve finally gotten through my first run through Royal’s book and watched the whole DVD. If there is a Dali Lama among drummers, Murray found him in Royal Hartigan. What a peaceful presence at the kit! His materials and system are very helpful to anyone wanting to improve their 4 limb intuition on the drum set. Tapspace has done an awesome job at packaging this method too. It is a steal at $40! Royal seems to be a true nexus to other drum cultures and philosophies. Thank you for making his work available to the rest of us."
