The marimba ‘calypso’ is a musical instrument in the idiophone family with two identical mirrored scales.

It consists of a set of metal tubes, which resonate with a soft sound, rich in harmonic tones. Two people at a time can play the marimba ‘calypso’. The instrument fits well with a handpan ‘koala’, and with tubular bells ‘forest’. The playing technique is very simple and intuitive. Just strike the middle parts of the tubes in any rhythm with the mallets.

The instrument can be fixed to the ground with two anchoring systems:

Concrete anchor – ensures a professional and stable installation of the instruments on soft surfaces (e.g. lawn, sand)

Flat anchor – the best solution to install instruments on hard surfaces (e.g. concrete)
