Welcome to the Santa Fe Marimba Festival 2012
Join us in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, for a four day celebration of the marimba: June 6-9, 2012, featuring some of the finest marimba artists on the planet. Daily workshops and concerts with artists from Japan, Croatia, Taiwan, Belgium, and the US.
Three stellar evening concerts will be held at the St. Francis Auditorium and The Lensic Performing Arts Center highlighting marimba music from around the world.  Join us for two free community events on Saturday, June 9 at the St. Francis Auditorium – 9:00 – 10:30 AM -  Kid’s and family hands on Zimbabwean marimba workshop with Angela Gabriel; and, at 12:30 – 2:00 PM – a concert featuring local marimbists with guest artists Valerie Naranjo and Barry Olsen.


The Santa Fe Marimba Festival is a unique musical and educational event based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Festival features top international marimba and vibraphone artists from all musical genres, who will perform as well as teach workshops and master classes. The goal of the Festival is to provide those who attend an unforgettable musical and educational experience with the featured artists in an intimate, relaxed setting, while enjoying the beauty of Santa Fe. To enhance this experience all events will be within walking distance of the accommodations recommended by the Festival.

We are also striving to integrate with the Santa Fe community by including local marimba artists and marimba bands in the Festival, as well as the featured international artists, developing outreach programs for children and adults and giving free concerts to the general public.

Our final goal is to help promote an awareness of the marimba to a wider audience through its music and artists, as well as through community outreach.
