Mexican Marimba Quartet Showcased

Hugo Suarez

Right now at the Mexican Institute, ‘Mario Nandayapa,’ a world famous Mexican Quartet is set to kick off a free show. The family quartet plays Mexican and international selections on their decades old instrument. It’s a showcase of culture at its finest and the Mexican Embassy wants you to attend. The show is set to last for some two hours or so, and there is still time for you to go on out at the institute.

“Mario Nandayapa is one of the best Marimba musicians in the world and he is performing around since seven years ago with his family, actually with children, a daughter and two sons. They will be here at the Mexican Institute at seven pm performing for the Belizeans to show them a little piece of the Mexican culture but at the same time they will play the music of the big masters of Europe from Baugh to masters of France and then we will have a two hours concert that will have a lot of surprises for everybody that wants to come. This is the house of the Mexicans and the Belizeans in Belize City. The Mexican Institute was built to show and to share with our brothers from Belize, the millenarian culture of Mexico. Finally the marimba is one of these representations, and the instrument, this one was built more than sixty years ago in Chiapas by the Nandayapa Family. We are sharing with you something that we are very proud of, these young people that perform and continue the traditions inside our borders and outside of them. This group has played around the world; they have played in Japan, South Korea, Europe, America, and Asia, and this is the first time they are coming to Belize. I am sure because of the warm reception that they have had, this is not the only time they are gonna be here. They are going to have to repeat.”
