Ghanaia by Matthias Schmitt has become an extremely popular four mallet marimba solo thanks to its Western compositional style and addictive African rhythms. This piece of music is simply fun to play and will be an instant crowd-pleaser. As a bonus, it will really work on left hand chops that are needed to play a constant ostinato! Put this on a recital if you need something entertaining, fun, or world percussion-based. Feel free to add other people on drums and accessories to make it a jam session!
