Hi, this is Wiwi from Taiwan. I wrote this piece for a Taiwanese percussion group, and this piece was premiered (with tango dancers!) at Taiwan National Concert Hall on August 9, 2013.

It's a (not very traditional) tango for 2 marimbas, 2 vibraphones and an upright bass, hope you guys like it.

Music with animated score: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3S6Ijmv01I

Brilliant! And a great recording as well! (though it's a digital recording this one, right? I'd love to hear the normal one with the dancers and all)

I enjoyed that a lot and found it very interesting, and also the Mozart Turkish March arrangement posted earlier which I don't think I commented on:

Wow this is great. I like the choice of instrumentation. This piece is unique, engaging, and intelligent. Doesn't get boring even though it is eight minutes long. Very cool.

How long have you been composing? Also, do you like Carribean Jazz Project? I was sort of grasping for what might have been a possible influence for you and they are the only band that comes to mind.
