Afro-Marimba Season's Greetings!

With Christmas carols playing all round, I decided I would join in and have a go at one too! Here's an African inspired version of my all-time favorite Christmas song, O Holy Night.

The clip is recorded in my room in London using three marimbas - a soprano, tenor and baritone marimba - with Zimbabwean hosho shakers and a hand drum I bought in Marrakech a few years back.
