Andé — A Program Worth Planning Ahead For

photo: AndeThe Andé Marimba Band will be playing at La Farge Library at 2 PM on Saturday, March 18th, 2006. Andé is a seven member young adult co-ed band that plays all over Northern New Mexico. They currently play on six marimbas of varioius sizes, hosho (shakers) and a drum set. Most of the songs Andé Marimba Band play are traditonal songs from the Shona people of Zimbabwe. Some of the songs Andé plays are composed for marimba in the traditional style by modern Shona and American composers.

It's not possible to be within earshot of Andé without starting to dance around to the music. They're terrific.
