Music for marimba - a musical experience beyond the ordinary!
Welcome to the wonderful world of marimba!
Fia Forslund is an internationally active freelance percussionist with marimba and vibraphone as her main instrument. She has her roots in classical music but moves freely between genres, in the borderland between world music, jazz and folk music. Fia is educated in classical percussion at the University of Stage and Music in Gothenburg and at the Conservatório Brasileiro de Música in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has also worked a lot with theater music and performing arts, among others. at Scenkonst Västernorrland, Scenkonst Sörmland and Byteatern, Kalmar County Theater.
Fia gives solo concerts with marimba, usually with completely acoustic programs as the instrument's warm deep sound creates its own unique resonance. Music from all corners of the world meets here together with both classical gems and original music. With dancing joy of playing and virtuoso musicality, you get to go on a journey and get to know this fantastic instrument.
