Ohhh! So funky! Didn't see it coming at the beginning!

 

Really like the way the one theme keeps coming back

 

At 1:00-1:02 you could have just a small interjection between the marcato string notes from some other instrument - nothing continuous but just a small echo or something.

 

Maybe develop some of your backing ideas e.g. at 1:51 that little idea is great - it could become part of a new section to keep things more integrated.

 

If you feel the tonality getting boring (I do but that's just me and often people disagree) you could try a different mode. PM me if you don't know what I'm on about. Might be a terrible idea though.

 

Overall really good selection of instruments and quite original in their combination. Great sense of rhythm and variety.

Ok cool so a mode is a sequence of notes like a scale. Your piece is in A minor, so uses note ABCDEFG#A. You start and end on A most of the time and the other most important note is E, the fifth, which you also go to a lot. This is a good thing and makes your piece sound 'right'. To change the mode you'd change the first note of your scale so it ends up something like DEFG#ABCD. Now you have a mode of the A minor scale that starts on D. Change the underlying chords so they reinforce it - e.g. D minor (DFA), A minor (ACE), D minor (DFA), A major (AC#E). Stay like this for a section of your piece and see what you come up with. 

 

When you change mode or key, you can also change the backing texture so it has a bit of a different feel. This makes it better when you go back to your A minor section.

 

 

You could use DEFGABCD, leaving the G as a natural instead of sharp. This would give you a more common mode, which is called 'Dorian', but might lose some of your oriental flavour.
