Marimba Music


Marimba Music

Strap in for a lesson from everyone’s favourite music teacher, Linsey Pollak, and learn to play the ‘Humarimba’ – one of Linsey’s instrument creations. 

The ‘Humarimba’ is a marimba (or large xylophone) that is played by three people and suspended from the belts of two of the three players.  

No matter what your level of musical experience, this workshop is for anyone who wants to connect with others and join a community of music-makers.  Come alone or bring some friends to play in your trio alongside the other band members. 

Hosted at the Wonderland Spiegeltent, this 90-minute hands-on workshop will see you playing upbeat rhythms in an 18 person marimba band! 

“Linsey Pollak is one of Australia’s most brilliant and under-rated composer/musicians. He is wildly innovative in the use of instruments but never lets his experimentation get in the way of the musicality of a work.”
