Modern Marimba

Modern Marimba creates spaces to reclaim the musical voices of living, formerly living, and collective people who have been muted throughout western history. We are based in Sarasota, Florida, an area on Indigenous Calusa, Tocobaga, and Seminole territory and once inhabited by Black Seminoles and an Angolan community of maroons.

About Us

Modern Marimba started in October 2019 with a mission by co-founders Tihda Vongkoth and Michael Jones to curate concert music programs featuring the marimba, vibraphone, and many types mallet percussion keyboards.


Our upcoming 2020 – 2021 season of music performances!
