The marimba deeply rooted in the states of Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz and Oaxaca, since the mid-nineteenth century has become a cultural symbol of southern Mexico. Come and enjoy a Mexican repertoire by percussionist Mariana Ramírez accompanied by Andew Beall.

* In the case of inclement weather, the pre-show & screening will be moved indoors to Culture Hub at 440 West 202nd Street.
The marimba is a percussion instrument consisting of a set of wooden bars, arranged like the keys of a piano, which are hit with mallets (sometimes by two or even three performers). Although, marimbas are an important element of the regional folk music in Southern Mexico, any musical style can be performed on a marimba.
