Members of Grupo Folklorico Tikal, the traditional Guatemalan dance group that has performed for CoFiA several times, recently purchased a small marimba. In the photo some of the group are beginning to learn how to play it, from marimbist Marina Diaz. Unfortunately, Marina has left the area and the group has no teacher.
We are looking for a teacher and for small contributions to help pay for instruction. The marimba, as you know, is an important component of Guatemalan culture and the group is eager to learn how to play it.
