Percussion Ensemble

Tico Tico no fuba for percussion ensemble (drumline)

I watched a video of the Berlin Philharmonic playing Tico Tico with the most animated conductor I’ve ever seen! And then set out to create something just for percussion. For mallet percussion and drumline. You should read the Wiki on the original and listen to the recording that’s posted there. I would like to think the drums are subdued and don’t overpower the mallets so that the intent of the original is pretty clear, maybe identical, but I didn’t create or change much of the mallet part.. They do more to support the melody in the mallets than interject some loud battery statement. Sheet MusicFull Score and Individual parts all in one PDF
