The Marimba Nacional de Concierto Guatemala is a musical nonprofit organization created to study, investigate, develop, and promote everything that involves the Guatemalan marimba and its musical legacy, with the purpose to dignify both the instrument as a handcrafted instrument and the marimba players. The concept was created by Maestro Lester H. Godínez to bring the music around the world. The repertoire includes music of Mayan roots, popular music, academic, symphonic, and contemporary works. This concert is their first appearance in Boston and is a commemoration of the introduction to the U.S. of the chromatic marimba by the Hurtado Brothers’ Marimba Royal from Guatemala one hundred years ago.
