With deep African roots, the Marimbula originated in 19th century Cuba. It is widely acknowledged as an important instrument in the development of Afro-Cuban music, specifically Changui. Our Marimbula produces deep, mellow tones often used as a substitute for bass in acoustic ensembles. Eight metal tongues are fastened so they can be individually tuned to a scale from D to G. Meticulously handcrafted from Mohena by our skilled artisans in peru, the Gon Bops Marimbula also includes a FREE gig bag!
