DIY Family Fun: When the Marimba Rhythms Start to Play

Today we will make a simple marimba, a xylophone-like instrument, out of pvc pipe. While these types of pitched percussion instruments have ancient origins, the marimba was born out of early afro-caribbean music. We will play along to various Spanish and English versions of the song Sway, written by Mexican composer Luis Demetrio, and popularized in the U.S. by Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
