The Get Together Marimba Festival stands as a unique platform that highlights the rich cultural heritage of marimba music. It brings together students from various schools, providing an inclusive space for them to showcase their musical talents. Past editions have been resounding successes, and the upcoming festival aims to be even more remarkable.

This year’s theme, “Taking VPA out of the classroom,” encourages participants to incorporate any Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) aspect into their performances. The theme song for the festival is the traditional piece “Nhemamusasa,” setting a tone of cultural authenticity and communal spirit.

The festival will feature captivating performances by marimba ensembles from different schools across the region. It offers students an invaluable opportunity to collaborate, learn from each other, and express their passion for music. Importantly, the festival is non-competitive, welcoming bands of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced.

Participants will have access to a variety of instruments on the day, including standard and extended marimbas, drums, Ngoma, and Hosho. Schools are encouraged to bring their own instruments as well. Notably, there is no limit on the number of students that can attend this year’s festival, making it a truly inclusive event.

Festival Director Kelvin Chikumbirike extended a warm invitation to all schools, emphasizing that their participation would significantly contribute to the event’s success and offer students a unique platform to showcase their musical abilities.
