My joy at finding this video clip of The Marimba Ponies was tempered by embarrassment when I discovered that I already own a few LPs by the Marimba Ponies and I didn't even realize it. I think I've been collecting records too long - and I don't even consider myself a collector. But I digress. Here are The Marimba Ponies, who operate internationally without the crutch of conductor or sheet music, bouncing and prancing rhythmically in order to foster international goodwill, doing Sabre Dance: (download video, 8 meg mpg file). The Marimba Ponies are aged four through twelve, at which point they are forcibly retired from the marimba business and offered gainful employment dodging lizards with the J-Pop girl group Morning Musume.
More Marimba Ponies video can be found here, and their homepage is here. If you really love Sabre Dance, like I do, here are two MP3 versions of it: one by Takeshi Terauchi and The Bunnys, and the other by The Texas Chainsaw Orchestra. Here are still more versions of Sabre Dance from the WFMU Realaudio archives.
