Knotty Dotters Marimba Band
Joyous, energetic, foot-stomping dance music produced by interlocking rhythms and melodic lines can describe the sounds from the hardwood keys of the Zimbabwean marimba accompanied by hoshos and a djembe played by a group of women from the Sunshine Coast.
We play in traditional style of Zimbabwe, with a bit of influence from the Oregon and Sunshine Coast.
