Meet the Marimba: Instrument of the Week

The marimba is part of the percussion family as it consists of wooden bars that are struck with a mallet to produce their sound, which has been described as “dark, mellow, velvety, melodious and hollow”. The marimba looks almost exactly like a xylophone, but it is much larger and therefore has a lower register and a wider compass. The marimba has its origins in Africa, more specifically from the 13th century in what is now modern-day Mali.
