Chaia Marimba Music Book 3
Church Songs from Zimbabwe and South Africa
By Maria Minnaar-Bailey
Book and CD
72 pages
Middle School and up

This third volume in the Chaia Marimba Music series focuses on choral singing, with marimbas used as accompaniment. However, even though the marimba arrangements were created specifically to accompany the choral arrangements, they can be played as instrumental pieces as well. In the same way, the choral arrangements may be sung a capella, if so desired.

The aim of this book is to demonstrate what can happen when you add the rhythms and sounds of Zimbabwe-style marimbas to choral singing, and in particular, to African church songs.
