The Martians Tribes by Emmanuel Séjourné brings four marimbists together on one marimba in a groovy, silly piece that keeps general crowds entertained with its antics and artistic audiences interested with its musical content. The music has a very African quality, involving a lot of interweaving and repetitive grooves. All of the players will need to memorize the music and have a great deal of stage presence (plus a sense of comedic timing) to give this piece its due. The complexity of some of the patterns can make this work quite a challenge musically, never mind all of the problems that arise from having to switch places with other players.
