Mufaro Marimba Ensemble:
The name Mufaro means “Joy” in Shona, the language spoken by the originators of this music in Zimbabwe. The music is happy, fun to play polyrhythmic parts that fit together like a puzzle.
Mufaro Marimba’s philosophy in their own words:
“we love Shona music, and we love to learn. This exciting, dynamic, poly rhythmic music is fun to learn and challenging to play. We love the traditional connection and strive to play it the way it was meant to be played, but we also love to “spice it up” too!”

Their instruments are handmade wooden marimbas fashioned after those first made and refined in Zimbabwe around 1960 and chosen as a new national instrument taught to students at Kwanongoma College in Bulawayo

Mufaro Marimba are: Bernie Martinwood, Jen Mutch, Dana Barber, Lizanne Chicanot, Barb Roberts, Marti Wood, Dawne Kirwan and guest Chad DeCorte.
