CANCELED - Maru-a-Pula Marimba Band

The exquisitely exuberant Maru-a-Pula Marimba Band of Gaborone, Botswana brings their joyous sound to Williamstown. This ten-piece student ensemble plays both traditional and contemporary marimba music on their North American tour. African marimba music has a long tradition at Williams, and the music department welcomes back the director Laone Thekiso, Class of 2012. Mr. Thekiso is also an alumnus of Maru-a-Pula, a co-educational, independent day and boarding secondary school with a reputation as one of Africa’s premier academic institutions, founded in 1972.

This performance is part of the Ernest Brown World Music Series
