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.

"I would like to thank Danny Raymond and Tapspace for the release of Let It Rip. I know it's a few years old now, but this is the perfect tutorial for learning and expanding your vocabulary for drumming. Danny has presented here a flawless display of technique and compositions for snare drum. I am actually working on my second copy of the disc! The pdfs are easy to follow. What I like most about this dvd is this... Danny has shown the viewer here that you can have the speed and the visual side of things happening, but the articulation in which he plays, nobody does it better! I've said before that Danny has the best hands in the business. I hope to catch more of Danny's drumming in the future in any format available."
