“Marimba: A South American Episode” is a sheet music piece composed by Howard Johnson and Cliff Hess. The sheet music was published in 1922 by the Leo Feist, Inc. The tune is a lively and energetic number that incorporates the sounds and rhythms of South American music, particularly the marimba, a percussion instrument commonly used in Latin American music. The melody features a catchy and syncopated rhythm, with a lively piano accompaniment that evokes the sounds of a marimba ensemble. The sheet music features an illustrated cover that depicts a young woman dancing to the music of a marimba player, surrounded by lush tropical foliage and palm trees, capturing the exotic and vibrant spirit of South America.
