Current Editing Conventions: Band names are in RED and in large size. If more than one person creates a band, choose one and use a BLACK arrow to link the other names to the band with the "connect" feature. Connect a persons name to their own name in other bands to see their own band progression. Use the GREEN arrow.

Dumisani Maraire

One could write what they like about Dumi here.   My suggestions: When he got to US.  What and where he studied before coming etc.  

Students - University of Washington

Dumisani Maraire taught marimba and mbira to a number of students at the University of Washington from 1968 -1972. Dumi and some of the students would occasionally perform as an ensemble in the Seattle area. The students who regularly performed are listed.

Dumi and the Minanzi Marimba Ensemble

Dumi and the Minanzi Marimba Ensemble formed in 1975, the first marimba band in the USA. The band consisted of the founder and leader, Dumisani Maraire, from Zimbabwe, and former students of the University of Washington and The Evergreen State College, plus two members from Black Arts West. The band became a popular fixture of the Seattle nightclub scene and throughout the Pacific Northwest. In 1977 they went on a 6-week tour of the US, performing in numerous cities around the country, including a performance at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC. The band released a 1977 album "Rufaro" and a 1977 45 rpm with the songs Chiro Chacho and Mweya. Dumi and the Minanzi Marimba Ensemble disbanded in 1978. This was a groundbreaking band that started the widespread and growing interest in Zimbabwe marimba music.
