Solo Marimba (and Voice)

nick vibes2

I perform solo marimba at local grower’s markets, weddings, and other events.

My repertoire consists of Colombian currulao, African mbira, Mexican waltzes and polkas, jazz standards, classic rock/pop tunes, South Indan kritis, western classical pieces, country/bluegrass and anything that inspires me.

I can perform: 

1) purely acoustically - with no amplification

2) with amplification for the voice and/or marimba

3) as “baterimba” (adding foot percussion)

4) with pre-recorded backing tracks of harmony and percussion

5) with a bassist, violinist, percussionist or any combination of ensemble


“Guabina Chiquinquireña” (Bambuco Colombiano)



“La Llorona” (Vals Nuevo Mexicano)




“Kilele” (Son Chocoano)
