Kutambarara ("to spread out") is a joyous and reflective song composed by Dumisani Maraire. It celebrates, in Dumi's words, the "spreading out of African concepts, perspectives, philosophies, traditions and cultures through African music." This workshop will focus on Dumi's marimba arrangement, featuring a beautiful lead based on singing melodies, as well as other parts in the style of Nyunga Nyunga mbira.
Student Materials: A standard set of 7 marimbas will be available for this workshop.
