“A really exciting piece to play!”
This is another great piece from Nicole Chamberlain who is really skillful at using beat-boxing techniques and bringing them into mainstream repertoire. The drive is created through changing bar lengths and cross rhythms and when you combine them with cha's, sha's, jet whistles, stomps etc the result is a really exciting piece of music. Three adventurous players will love this!
