In the short space of three years, since its inception in 2006, the National Marimba Festival has taken its place as a highlight on South Africa's rich cultural calendar. Organizers are confident that this, the fourth edition of the National Marimba Festival taking place on 25 and 26 July 2009, will be the best yet.
Participants and audiences will have the opportunity of enjoying fresh and exciting talent from all over South Africa. As stated in a press release by the organizers: "The eclectic mix of music played on the marimba will give a clear indication …South Africa's musical diversity and the versatility and adaptability of the marimba as an instrument. Over the three years, for example, the competition component of the festival has featured everything from classical music to light pop and folk music. And, of course, hearing young musicians playing traditional South African music has become a thrilling feature of the festival."
