Rattletree Marimba-Live July 22, 2010
Rattletree is a Zimbabwean style marimba band based in Austin, Texas. They play high-energy dance and trance music that is guaranteed to get you on the dance floor and moving from the first song! They have been called ‘Blue Man Group Meets Afropop’ because of their giant hand-crafted instruments and their high-energy stage presence. Averaging over 100 shows a year since their relocation from New Mexico in 2006, Rattletree is as comfortable at Family Music Festivals as they are at all night dance parties or teaching clinics and workshops. They continue to look outward to share their music throughout the US and beyond. Rattletree stopped by Studio 1A for a session with John Aielli on Eklektikos.
