Goede Hoop Marimba Band plays Antonio Vivaldi

Watch more with these video collections:

From Gloria to a bit of Spring from The Four Seasons, this young marimba band from Boksburg, South Africa‘s Goede Hoop Primary School brings energy and enthusiasm to the works of Antonio Vivaldi.

The performance was filmed in 2019 at Education Africa’s International Marimba and Steelpan Festival, an annual music event that celebrates the two instruments. From the festival website:

“Education Africa launched The International Marimba and Steelpan Festival to create an awareness world-wide of the educational value of marimba playing and to create an International platform for our marimba and steelpan players in South Africa to perform on…

“Many steelpan players play marimbas and vice versa and while the two types of instruments are totally different in layout, design and sound, they complement each other beautifully when played together in ensemble. Steelpans as well as marimbas are played in many schools in South Africa, as well as all around the world and it is wonderful to bring these two diverse traditional instruments together at our Festival.”

Another festival performance features a medley of Shakira’s Waka Waka (This Time for Africa), The Lion Sleeps Tonight, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ode to Joy.
