Description

The marimba is a musical instrument in the percussion family. Keys or bars (usually made of wood) are struck with mallets to produce musical tones. The keys are arranged as those of a piano, with the accidentals raised vertically and overlapping the natural keys (similar to a piano) to aid the performer both visually and physically.



The chromatic marimba was developed in southern Mexico and northern Guatemala from the diatonic marimba, an instrument whose ancestor was a type of balafon that African slaves built in Central America.



Modern uses of the marimba include solo performances, woodwind ensembles, marimba concertos, jazz ensembles, marching band (front ensembles), drum and bugle corps, and orchestral compositions. Contemporary composers have utilized the unique sound of the marimba more and more in recent years.

I like it

Marsh Sutherland

This is good because I like percussion especially marimba because I don't have a marimba, I only have a xylopipes, so It is a good start from getting a bourne tenor, baritone, and big bass.

Decent, lacking some features

Ok. Cannot play multiple notes simultaneously, which is very common for this instrument

Yay

This marimba app actually sounds like a marimba, other marimba apps don't. I'm in marimba band so I like to practice at home with this app. Thanks I really enjoy it
