The Twin Cities-based Marimba Bullies play upbeat, high-energy music on diatonic marimbas. Their sound is
built on the rhythmically complex music of the African mbira, as played by the Shona people of Zimbabwe. The
Bullies' repertoire includes traditional African tunes, music composed specifically for the ensemble, and
arrangements of popular Western music. All these influences combine to create the lively, danceable, fun
style that is unmistakably the Marimba Bullies.
