MARIMBA
Tuned percussion instrument with wooden bars and tube resonators with a characteristically full round resonant tone. The range is usually three to four octaves, and it is played with rubber core mallets covered with a certain yarn. Originally from Africa, the instrument is also found in some Latin American countries, including Mexico and Guatemala.
