Marimba Festival

International Marimba and Steelpan Festival South Africa

27-29 July 2018

The highlight of the marimba bands’ calendar. The hugely anticipated trip to Gauteng. Last year they went as spectators, this year they competed and made us proud.

Judges comments from festival:

MUSIC VOYAGE Well done!! Nice rumba clave feel giving space and groove. Lots of effort and commitment. Lively performance. Good variation in middle section. Well done.

It was an action-packed weekend of djembe and marimba workshops, massed marimba and hip hop and… a 3D movie!

Special thanks to Nicky Phillips (one of our Directors) and family for accommodating us in your home and providing food and wonderful hospitality. Food For Life South Africa for the delicious lunches and Education Africa for the meals and, of course, the AMAZING festival! We are tremendously grateful!
