On a sweet Saturday night in September, Earthaven members, residents and friends were treated to a fabulous dance party courtesy of the Chikomo Marimba Band.
Earthaven Member and co-owner of Mud Straw Love natural building company, Mollie Curry, and her builder, drummer husband Steve Kemble are part of the Asheville-based band, which features seven marimbas, from soprano to base (the base is so big they need a platform to reach all the keys!).
The event, a fundraiser for Culture’s Edge, left no one sitting for long with the band’s syncopated and contrapuntal melodies and rhythms. We are already talking about when we might get them back!
