Definition of marimba in English:
A deep-toned xylophone of African origin. The modern form was developed in the US circa 1910.
- Here the group combines trombone, a simplistic guitar line, and what sounds like either a marimba or a xylophone.
- However, the decay on real xylophones and marimbas is so long that the counterpoint gets muddied.
- It also has a small number of strings and a sizable percussion section which includes marimbas, steel drums and an African drum called a Djembe.
