      Marímbula

      • Wikipedia: Marímbula
      • Family: Tuned percussion -> Lamellophone (along with the mbira)
      • Description: folk musical instrument of the Caribbean Islands (not to be confused with a marimba).
      • Appears on:
        1. A Midwinter Night's Dream
        2. Un bruit qui court (marimbula by Simon Edwards)
        3. Head Hunters
        4. Mr. Love and Justice
        5. L'Eau, played by Simon Edwards on track 9
      • Comments:
        • Different to African lamellophones used to produce complex polyphony and polyrhythms, the marímbula basically plays the role of a bass guitar. – Fabe56
        • Already cited in the instrument tree under the mbira entry but apparently different from an mbira, according to WP (" (marimbula) is regaining popularity among hip hop artists and mbira players") and to this book which presents the marimbula as a larger version of an mbira. Xhienne
