Festival 2021 Opening Recital Features the African Originated Marimba – Wednesday, February 3, 7:30pm

According to oral history, the story of the marimba began in Africa, where holes were dug in the ground, wooden bars were made to cross over this hole, and the bars were struck to produce sound. The Zulu tribe of South Africa is said to have legends of a goddess named Marimba who created a xylophone with gourds attached. During this opening event, Dr. Sean Daniels & Dr. Lawrence Quinnett, will present the Toshiro Mayuzumi’s Concertino for Xylophone & Piano.
