Shumba - Boka Marimba

Portland’s Original High-Energy African Style Marimba Ensemble

Greetings from Boka Marimba! We are Portland’s original African-style marimba band. We have been thrilling audiences in the Pacific Northwest with the exuberant music of Zimbabwe and Southern Africa for more than 20 years. Boka Marimba is a ten piece band, blending soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass marimbas, drum set, percussion, and vocals to create a unique and irresistible sound. Our music is upbeat, danceable, fun to watch, and appeals to listeners of all ages.
