THE MAELSTRÖM PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE - WHIRLED MUSIC
Here's another Zappa-coverversion that I had never heard of. The Maelström Percussion Ensemble with "Whirled Music". From 1998.
The album does indeed include music from all over the Whirled: music from Puerto Rico, Senegal, Bulgaria, Cuba, Ghana, and from the United States. The latter one being Frank Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'.
A bit of a hodgepodge, but worth a listen.
'Peaches En Regalia' is performed in trio: marimba, drums and mallets.
