ABOUT US

Otto Gumaelius leads a lively, upbeat southern African marimba group, performing folk music from Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The group's set up typically includes African marimbas with drums, shakers, vocals and dance. The instruments are all acoustic, so require no micing - making the set up very flexible.
