UFO Tofu is a popular Bela Fleck tune adapted for modern percussion ensemble. At the bright tempo of 225 beats per minute, the piece has an upbeat, cut-time feel that weaves in and out of some advanced meter changes. Many of the mallet orchestrations will require a solid grasp of 4-mallet independence concepts. This arrangement first premiered at the DCI Individual & Ensemble Competition by the Santa Clara Vanguard Percussion Ensemble. The exuberance of the piece naturally lends itself to audience appeal and would make for a perfect encore piece at the end of a concert.
