In the Shona language of Zimbabwe, Marimba means “the wood that sings", and that is totally true. This ensemble is for the person who has never participated in African Marimba classes but has always wanted to try!
In fact, no previous musical experience is required, just enthusiasm to play some really fun, “happy” music!
We will learn to play songs from Zimbabwe and South Africa, including some poly-rhythmic arrangements.
We will have sopranos, tenors, a baritone and a bass marimba for participants to use during the class.
This is African music so it is all taught verbally.
This music is spreading across Alaska, as there are currently 3 bands in Homer, 2 in Anchorage, and one each in Kodiak, Juneau, and most recently Fairbanks.
