Notes The marimba is one of the most popular instruments in Mexico. In addition, the performance of Mexican folk music often features multiple players on a single marimba and the use of odd time signatures. Such is also the case in The Three Banditos. The counting of a 5/8 time signature can effectively be broken down into measures of 3 + 2 or 2 + 3 depending on the pulse of the music. In this case, 3 + 2 applies to all 5/8 bars. The tune can be kept light and rhythmic by treating the accents as friendly pulses. Also, to maximize the overall effect of the “story,” be sure to take your time and “breathe”together while phrasing the sad, slow section. The cheerful recapitulation to follow should make for a successful getaway! – Brian Slawson


Instrumentation and Setup The Three Banditos calls for three players sharing one 4.3-octave marimba (low A)


Level: Med-Easy Approx. playing time: 2’10”
