Musango Marimba Center Musango Marimba Home

Welcome to the Musango Center!

The Musango Center, located in Hood River, Oregon, is  dedicated to providing music education using a rich and joyful repertoire of music from southern Africa. Students aged 8 through adult can learn to play Zimbabwean-style marimba in small classes with plenty of individual attention. The Center also periodically hosts visiting artists from Zimbabwe and elsewhere for concerts and other cultural events.

Musango means “in the forest” in the Shona language of Zimbabwe. The Center is located on 22 forested acres in the Columbia River Gorge community of Hood River. Come join us!



Fall Classes for ages 8 through 18 start September 12! See Schedule for details.
