West African Musician
Chikomo Marimba is a group that plays contemporary and traditional Zimbabwean music, and is open to expanding into other musical styles. Our mission is to share and celebrate the joy of the music we play among ourselves and with others. The interweaving parts/expressions that come together through our music create synergy and celebrate the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

He was raised learning and playing the music as his family is Griots, meaning the music is passed from family members through the generations. Arouna sings in Bambara a West African language, he also plays balafone and ngoni, both native instruments from Burkina Faso.
