Rice African Music Ensemble presents “Marimba Madness”

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 AT 10 A.M.

Marimba Madness is an exciting musical performance that takes the audience on an interactive cultural journey around the world. Using drums and marimbas from Africa and Latin America, musician Andrew Keller and the Rice African Music Ensemble explain the history behind these instruments as well as teach traditional songs and stories, play interactive games and even give audience members an opportunity to play the instruments themselves. This presentation reinforces themes of community, cooperation and respect for one’s history, while displaying how traditional music has been important to composers in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
