Percussionists from Taiwan to Denmark flock to Texas, Marimba Builder Packs Its Crates
The largest drum and percussion tradeshow in the world, PASIC, will welcome Marimba One among its exhibitors. Running from November 11 to November 14, PASIC features over 120 concerts, clinics and masterclasses.
The marimba, a unique percussion instrument, resembles an oversize xylophone but with large resonator tubes. Its keyboard is made of Honduras Rosewood, a wood from Central America so famed for its tonal quality that it is called "The Wood That Sings."
The marimba has grown rapidly in popularity and is now found in hundreds of symphonies and concert halls around the world.
Marimba One, premier maker of concert marimbas, will showcase its new marimba one Izzy and its latest marimba one 3100, the synthesis of 30 years of voicing experience on a completely new design. Marimba One will have several world-famous artists present at the tradeshow in their booth 202 as well as on stage, giving a unique opportunity to hear the dark, rich, warm sound of the marimba. In-booth demonstrations will be offered by Marimba One artists Maraca2 (U.K), Lynn Vartan (USA), Ronni Kot Wenzell (Denmark), Mi Youne Kim (S. Korea), and Wei-Chen Lin (Taiwan). Come to booth 202 to hear and try this extraordinary marimba.
The tradeshow ends Saturday November 14th.
The next edition of PASIC will take place November 9-12, 2016 in Indianapolis.
