Marimba Band


Gansbaai Academia’s Marimba Band made their debut in 2015 and the group has since become well-known icons in the instrumental music industry. One of their most notable achievements was taking part in the International Steelpan & Marimba Festival in Johannesburg, where they won first prize in their category. 

Playing a mixture of traditional African and fairly current reimaginings of popular music, the band performs at school functions, community events, weddings and festivals in-and-around Gansbaai.
