Bio

Marimba Nueva York is New York's only traditional Mexican marimba ensemble. Formed in 2003 to accompany the Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Nueva York, Marimba Nueva York is co-led by Ingrid Gordon and Andrea Pryor de Manrique, who first performed together in the Mexican marimba ensemble at the University of Illinois. Much of the group's material comes from the Chiapas region, where the marimba is the state instrument. The ensemble performs in folkloric costumes and plays together in the traditional Mexican style - on a single marimba! Marimba Nueva York is based in the Jackson Heights section of Queens, a major center of Latino culture in New York and one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
