One of the most fun pieces for young band this year!! Your band will love the pentatonic tonalities and your percussionists will have a blast playing the optional Taiko drums and other percussion parts. Plenty of mallet and auxillary percussion add character and authenticity to the piece. This will be a great recruitment tool when other students see how much fun your students are having!
