Welcome to New Marimba Wiki

This Wiki is dedicated to Marimba, the instruments that carry her name and their descendants.


Our goal is to act as a repository for anything and everything related to the creation, maintenance and development of the Marimba family of instruments, which were created by Queen Marimba of the Wakamba. These instruments include the modern concert Marimba, Balafons and all other African derived Marimbas, as well as the Karimba (miniature Marimbas), Berimbau (mouthbow) and Ngoma (the drum).
