Polyphony Marimba brings free show to Prtichard Park Sunday

As part of the Asheville Downtown Association’s Pritchard Park Cultural Arts Program, Polyphony Marimba will play a free concert on Sunday, July 21 from 3-6pm. Part of the percussion family, the marimba consists of wooden bars with resonators. The bars are struck with mallets to produce musical tones.

Polyphony Marimba is a nationally touring marimba ensemble based in Santa Fe, NM.  Formed in 2010, yet 25 years in the making, their music vibrantly conveys a deeply personal contemporary sensibility, while drawing from the ancient rhythms and melodies of southern Africa. Touched by the compelling beauty of Zimbabwean music, songs of this region are always part of the set. Their goal is to be true to the music, while giving it their own voice and extending the tradition with other musical influences.
