Marimba Muzuva has been captivating students and staff since 1994, with performances at hundreds of schools across BC. The group's dynamic, interactive, educational show brings the music of Africa to life with immediacy and impact. The power of marimbas (including the seven-foot bass!) and traditional drums, the mysterious sounds of the mbira and chipendani and the simple joy of South African gumboot dance are all woven together with storytelling to provide a mesmerizing experience.


By far the best show I've ever seen - they held the audience in the palm of their hand. Glen McKinnon, Murrayville Elementary
Their passion and playing blew me away. Joseph Blake, Victoria Times Colonist
