- Polyphony Marimba
This is Peter Swing's marimba band in Santa Fe NM. Peter is one of the original Jaka members, and co-authored the latest Jaka collaboration "Jakatu". Peter and I run Pauli Swing Studio, where we teach marimba, and various local groups come to rehearse.
Checkout this marimba band to hear the finest of roots Zimbabwean sounds, and Peter's beautifully complex compositions for marimbas. You'll think you fell into a JS Bach mbira jam!
