Otto Gumaelius is a London-based, Botswana raised, percussionist specialising in the marimba of southern Africa.
With almost twenty years of experience playing and performing marimba music, Otto has curated a show with some of the songs he grew up playing and singing.
These include folk songs, liberation struggle songs, original material as well as popular southern African covers. Taste of Southern Africa aims to do exactly that – give audiences a chance to sample some brilliant music from the southern part of the Africa continent.
The show incorporates marimba, mbira, drumming, singing and dancing, and promises to get people up and dancing and singing along!
