Bonga et Bongo (Buch + CD) - 14 small Latin-Title; little Set-Up (easy, f. beginner), Marimba-accomp. (4 Mallets; intermediate) Sheet music and CD for play-along
Brazilian music inspired this compilation of 14 duets meant for
percussion beginners. Bonga and Bongo is an approach to multi percussion
work. As difficulties are gradual, these duets should be played with a
chamber music feeling; the student can play with the teacher or with an
upper level student or two students sharing the two marimba parts.
Thanks to Brazilian percussions accompaniment as a pleasant substitute
for the metronome, the CD allows the student to improve setting and
rhythmical phrasing and makes him feel the groove. Teacherâ€™s help will
be needed to work on sound and movement. Bonga and Bongo may also offer
pieces of music for students concerts. Work well! Marimba parts are
published in a second book for upper level students.
