Cape Town Marimba and Steelband Festivals

Marimba and Steelband Festival

The annual Cape Town Steelband and Marimba Festivals are aimed at the development and growth of the steelpan (also known as the steel drum) and Marimba in South Africa. Funds raised from the show go towards providing instruments and teachers to schools who would otherwise be unable to afford them.
