Description

Brian Slawon’s Bongito is a perfect introduction to salsa music for young percussionists looking to expand their musical palettes. In this piece, percussionists will be exposed to a plethora of Latin percussion instruments like castanets, claves, timables, bongos, congas, and a guiro. In Slawson’s own words, “Bongito contains nothing smaller than an eighth notes but the syncopated rhythms can be challenging for a large ensemble proving, as always, that music is a team sport.”

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

Instrumentation

  • Glockenspiel
  • Xylophone
  • Marimba (shared low A)
  • Timpani (3 drums)
  • Drums (bongos, congas, timbales)
  • Cymbals & gongs (splash cymbal)
  • Accessories (cowbell, guiro, claves, castanets, vibraslap)
