Sosso-Bala by Emmanuel Sejourne was commissioned by the Ju-Percussion Group. It received its world premiere 22 March 2007 in Taiwan. The marimba parts are designed to be played by mulitple players on the same instruments (Two 5.0 octave marimba are required) which creates a very interesting visual and musical effect.
