Marimba Concert with Ambuya!
Enjoy the spirited music of Zimbabwe. These compelling African melodies will inspire you to move, dance and celebrate! Complex polyrhythms are played on wooden marimbas and accompanied by a traditional gourd shaker.
Ambuya means "grandmother or wise, elder woman." For the group Ambuya refers to the wisdom and joy they feel when they play marimba music together. Our ensemble — Lori Ingram, Lani Young, Linda Rake, Stacey Kerr, Barbara Wolcott, Cynthia McReynolds and Noori Dove — is fortunate to be guided by Michael Breez, co-founder of the Rufaro School of Marimba and Musasa Marimba Ensemble, and to be joined tonight by ethno-musicologist and vocalist, Bhavani Tucker.
We hope you'll join us for an evening of marimba magic!
