Viva Marimba

Lively Arrangements from Latin America

By Doug Edwards

Softcover book and CD with audio and data files

76 pages

Grades 4 – 8

 

Festive arrangements for marimbas of popular traditional tunes from Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, and Bolivia. Although best suited for diatonic marimbas and/or Orff instruments, F# or Bb bars may be needed. In most cases, accidentals have been purposefully avoided and/or substitute notes provided. Most of the songs are arranged in theme and variation form. Variations include solo sections, percussion breaks, and newly-composed secondary melodies. Some songs have lyrics. Chords are provided for additional accompaniment choices.

 

Performance tracks and reproducible lead sheets for each piece are available on the included CD. Choose from the Alphanotes score or standard notation.
