打击乐器 (Percussion Instruments)

马林巴琴是另一种使用橡胶音槌演奏的打击乐器。马林巴琴是木琴的非洲名称,它的形状很类似木琴,但它比木琴大而且音域也比木琴宽广。1900年代早期的许多流行歌曲都会来一段马林巴琴「变调」 (twist) ,就好像这段「星条旗进行曲. (Stars and Stripes Forever March) 的录音;马林巴琴歌曲受美国人喜爱的事实显示,民众接触外来音乐的机会越来越频繁。


The marimba is another percussion instrument that is played with a rubber mallet. Marimba is the African name for xylophone. It resembles that instrument in shape, but it's bigger and has a wider range of notes. Many popular songs in the early 1900s were given a marimba "twist," such as this recording of the "Stars and Stripes Forever March." The fact that marimba songs were well liked by Americans shows the increased exposure the public had to foreign styles of music.
