Friday's Cascara for Marimba Solo - 3 Min.; "Drumming on the Marimba", 3:2 Cascara Rhythmus, 3 Mallets, one of them is a "Rattle Mallet", intermediate
Based on the 3:2 cascara rhythm, this solo employs three different mallets to bring a variety of timbres from the marimba. Both the bars and frame of the instrument are played as the cascara and forward son clave are "drummed" on the marimba. A crowd pleaser--both sonically and visually!
