Musicians gather for the world's largest percussion tradeshow in Indianapolis, November 14-16.

Playing on marimbas at PASIC

Among the more unusual percussion instruments is the marimba, resembling an oversize xylophone. Its keyboard is made of Honduras Rosewood, a wood from Central America so famed for its tonal quality that it is called "The Wood That Sings."

The marimba has grown rapidly in popularity and is now found in hundreds of symphonies and concert halls around the world.

Marimba One, premier maker of concert marimbas, will have 10 artists present at the tradeshow in their booth 300 as well as on stage, giving a unique opportunity to hear the dark, rich, warm sound of the marimba. Marimba One artists' concert schedule is as follows:

2 p.m.-3 p.m. Chain Trio (Shoko Sakai, Conrado Moya, Arkadiusz Katny)
