Zambezi Marimba Band
The Williams College Department of Music presents the Zambezi Marimba Band in concert. This performance is free of charge and open to the public.
Zambezi Marimba Band delivers danceable music that radiates joy and verve. Led by Tendai Muparutsa, the Zambezi Marimba Band was founded in 1992 and is inspired by traditional Zimbabwean marimba music as well as contemporary African styles. Zambezi’s chromatic marimbas are hybrids, combining tempered tuning with a rich and buzzy African tone, making this a truly unique ensemble. Williams Family Days give parents and others a chance to attend a Friday class, enjoy student and faculty presentations, and get to know all of the new people in their student’s life. This performance is in that spirit too, an evening sharing the joy of Zambezi’s music with the whole community.
