Anzanga African Marimba Music
Please note, this event has expired.
Anzanga makes its 8th annual appearance at BPA, returning to perform the lively and beautiful melodies of Southern Africa, one night only on February 14.
Anzanga celebrates more than three decades of performing throughout the Northwest and globally. This Seattle-based ensemble brings the electrifying and energizing music of African marimba to the national and international stage with regional appearances at the Northwest Folklife Festival and Bumbershoot as well as performances in South Africa and China. The troupe’s repertoire is primarily from Zimbabwe, with influences from throughout Africa, in addition to original compositions. This special public performance is part of BPA’s Cultural Outreach Program.
Anzanga plays using seven marimbas—three sopranos, two tenors, a baritone, and a bass—and hoshos, or gourd shakers. The marimbas are hand-crafted xylophones made from various hardwoods. The tuning is based on the tonalities found in Zimbabwean music. Each key sits above aView more

Sensory Access is a nonprofit organization creating amazing experiences for children with Sensory difficulties. We feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy the magic of theater, the thrill of a concert, or the joy of a theme park. Children on the Autism Spectrum, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, and many other neurodevelopmental disorders have difficulty processing sensory information, which often gets in the way of enjoying events with their families. Our staff will help find tools, tips and accommodations so that each family has the ability to enjoy events fully with their child. For theatre productions, Sensory Access certified Theatres receive social stories about the specific theatre, guidance on how to help guests enjoy the show, and breakdowns of sensory moments for each show in their season. Noise-reducing headphones and quiet fidgets are available to borrow.
Service animals that qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act are always welcome at BPA. Service animals must be leashed or harnessed at all times and must also remain quiet for the courtesy of our actors and patrons. Please alert the Box Office at the time of ticket purchase if you intend to bring a service animal so that we may ensure that proper seating is reserved for you.View less
