Piero Umiliani: Mah-ná Mah-ná
Retschulte, Christopher M.
Ensemble de percussion
Mah-Ná Mah-Ná, written by Italian composer Piero Umiliani, is a nonsense song that achieved widespread fame as a classic Muppet sketch. Flexibly arranged for as few as 8 players or as many as 14 players, this arrangement preserves the catchy melodic material and enhances the upbeat style with vocalizations, birdcalls, hand claps, and vibraslap. It even includes a solo part that gives you the option of allowing a band director or guest artist the chance to perform with the group. An entertaining addition to any percussion ensemble concert!
Mah-Ná Mah-Ná comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
