Kusika and the Zambezi Marimba Band

Zambezi Marimba Band

The Williams College Department of Music presents the Zambezi Marimba Band in concert on Saturday, October 28 at 8 p.m. in Chapin Hall on the Williams College campus. This performance is free of charge and open to the public.

The Zambezi Marimba Band features danceable and melodious marimba music from Zambia and Zimbabwe. Zambezi is a diverse group and adds singers, a horn section, and other instruments to its solid marimba fundament. More a joyous celebration than just a concert, the band wins over every audience with its flair and irresistibly kinetic energy. This is an event for the whole family – for those who want to move or those who want to sit. Clap along, smile, and enjoy a wonderful evening.
