About Baba Marimba

We’re a Tucson band, been around for almost 12 years.

Our musicians have been regulars around town for decades, they’re well-known in various communities. We’ve played many times at Monterey Court, The Folk Festival, The Tucson Racquet Club and Solar Culture to mention a few venues. 

We closed the main stage at the 2024 Tucson Folk Festival - an honor for a local band!

We play “World Beat Fusion" featuring   baritone and soprano marimbas, kalimbas, electric viola, conch shells and African, Latin and Middle Eastern drums and percussion, mixed with drums, bass, guitar, horns and flute.

We create original compositions that draw heavily from Latin, Jazz, African, Reggae and R & B genres - with a few tangos and waltzes - hence the fusion tag. We love to make people dance!
