Balafon Beat, by Gert Kilian - Book
Languages: French, English, German
The book consists of three complementary parts: scores and instructions for preparatory exercises, the proper collection of 5 compositions for percussion ensembles (where balafon parts can be played by any mallet percussion instrument like marimba...); the third part is dedicated to "body percussions", a method that is meant to provide a deeper understanding (and feeling) of rhythm.
Gert Kilian is a brilliant musician, a genuine traditional-music enthusiast and he claims his work to be as much influenced by Jazz as it is by African folk music. The compositions presented here are a reflection of this mixed musical identity that Gert has experienced for years, in particular with Toulouse-based world music group "les Zoulousains".
Convenient in size and making (the book contains separate leaflets with scores for other musicians), Balafon Beat will leave all users satisfied and their approach to mallet percussions, enriched.
