      Description hide

      Steeped in centuries of tradition, Marimba Chapinlandia and its music express the "modern" marimba sound that took shape around the turn of the 20th century. Its catchy melodies, sentimental harmonies, and dance rhythms are the signature of Guatemala's national musical instrument that drew from the African, Indian, and Ladino (creole) roots of Central America's colonial past. For festive occasions or casual listening, the marimba expresses Guatemalan sentiment like no other music.
