Saw you all at the Hiawatha Music Fest this weekend. Loved listening and watching you play', as I told some of the members, I could be a Polyphony Marimba groupie. Thanks for the awesome job you did this weekend
I heard the Polyphony Marimba band while I was visiting Silver Spring in Maryland. I was afforded the opportunity of engaging some of the band members. I hope your travels with land you in Georgia around the Atlanta area. I love the sound of your band.
I sent you a few websites that you can checkout if you and musical team want to travel to Cuba. We talked briefly about Cuba when I saw you perform in downtown Silver Spring MD on Thursday 2 July.
Very happy to have seen you play in Silver Spring MD, just wish I'd had time for more than a single tune. Love that bass marimba. I'll look for you again in the DC area.
We experienced your wonderful music yesterday evening in Asheville, NC . Just wanted to let you know that we absolutely enjoyed your music and vibe of your group! Thank you so much for making our evening so beautiful! All the best for the rest of your tour!
Good road, Polyphony Marimba! I look forward to photographing you on the Plaza when you get home. Between now and then, smile a lot.
Looking forward to seeing you, playing together, and listening to your magical music in Joplin, MO next week.
Hi i work at Joes cafe in St louis Mo.USA Love your band and your mission is also very cool ! Thanks !!
Heard/Saw you in late March at the Santa Fe Train yard with our daughter and her family including our completely granddaughters who could do nothing but dance the whole time you were playing. Such a gift you all have! We feel so fortunate to have been there. And, of course, I listen to your album This Day every few days. Will never forget experiencing your music and hope to see you on the East Coast someday. Thanks again.
Saw and heard you all play at the Railyard today - A wonderful gift of beauty on a beautiful day! Thank you for sharing such lovely and happy music, and your skill, inspiration and joy in it!
Just got home and still HIGH! What a terrific evening, I can't remember when I enjoyed myself so much. Kind of hard to put into words just how special an evening it was. WOW, what talent those Polyphony Marimba kids have!
We heard you play today in South Haven, MI and I have never seen anything like it. I am a musician myself and I can tell you I was very impressed. I wish you much success with your careers and thank you for spreading the joy of your music.
Hey, Saw you today playing in New York City Washington park. It was a fantastic concert! Now, you've got two new fans. Hope, you could come to my hometown, Hamburg, Germany. If, so write me ;-)
Was visiting Santa Fe when I heard you playing in the plaza. I was mesmorized. Thanks for bringing new music to my life.
Saw you guys in the Santa Fe plaza yesterday! I absolutely adored it and kept making my family come back and see you! I hope to see you again very soon!
I saw you all at the Santa Fe Farmer's Market today. Fabulous. You have such a wonderful sound and great energy. I am ordering a CD right now, and can't wait to see you again!!!
I am a 56yr old british-born woman living between upstate NY & HI ~ on july 26th i got up bright & early & drove down to manhatten for an appointment with my macrobiotic teacher/counsellor (to seek his advise for a chronic condition that was getting the better of me) & planned to treat myself & go down to washington sq park after lunch, to see & hear what was happening (& bath my feet in the fountain!) The day went smoothly & i found a good parking spot right by the sq & felt so grateful to be there on such a beautiful day & i was feeling so excited, sensing new & unique experiences ~ After paddling in the fountain, refreshed by the cool water i ambled towards the pleasant jazz music coming from the south(?) side & walked past a group of people carrying what i presumed were wooden xylophones & was curious but went on & listened happily to the jazz group & then, just as they seemed to be coming to a stop.....................all my senses were awakened by this amazingly beautiful sound of woodland wonder coming from behind me ~ i felt like one of the pied pipers children, lured by the music, i practically ran up to your group, unable to stop smiling & dancing & i felt so alive & happy in a way that i had not ever before experienced ! In stayed for as long as i could & bought your CD & listened to it the whole way back home ~ the 3 hrs of travel went by so quickly & happily ~ wow ! i have been woken up again ! THANK YOU for sharing your gift of this beautiful earthy/magical/universal sound/music ~ it obviously reflects who you are as a person/people ~
I had the treat of seeing Polyphony Marimba at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago today. It was extremely fun to listen to and I loved all the energy!!! I wish I could see them again :(
Fab sounds always. Polyphony Marimba is the best. Play on!
Wow....you really rocked Joe's last night in St Louis. Hope to see you again on Tuesday. Keep making music!
Why do I have to learn about a band in my backyard from a friend in St. Louis? Doesn't matter, now I KNOW!
Awesome talent! Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed seeing you in Asheville, NC last week. Hope to see y'all again soon!!
The music you share is uplifting, inspiring, and complex. You guys are my morning 'coffee'. It gives me the boost I need to get going. Am hoping to see you in St. Louis or OK City in August. Rock on!!
Actor Jim Beaver has posted on Facebook about your music and here I am. Wonderful, beautiful music. It pulls the listener right in with its wonderful notes. You all are amazing.
How fortunate we were to have heard you all performing in Santa Fe Friday night. It was truly a magical experience for our seven daughters to hear you play and sing. We bought your cd, and enjoyed listening to it on our car ride back to Pueblo, Colorado. We'll be looking out for another concert. Thank you all.
Saw you guys today at the Santa Fe plaza and enjoyed your guys' music so much:) Can't wait to see you all in Chicago! Much love Rachel
What a gift this music is. Thanks for opening your lives to it so fully - and sharing it!
love it. so emotional. Played concert Marimba in Highschool. following African marimba for about 6 years.
Jamming to your cd right now, it was wonderful to meet all of you! Thank you for sharing your joyful spirit! Your music moves us! Love from Luralei and Luci, Denver CO
Great show in the Santa Fe Rail Yard. Sorry about the wind. Come back soon. TOM
Well I saw you guys play at Zimfest in August and you completely blew my mind. I'm an 8th grader in Coeur d Alene Idaho, and I have dedicated my life to music, considering I play 32 instruments. I play in a marimba group here, and it's soooo fun! I purchased the CD at Zimfest, listened to Kiki countless times. I have perfect pitch so I have listened to Kiki over and over, transfered the key into C major, and learned it! I'm still working on just the leads and I must say, Raven is a musical genius! - Caden Leo Davs
Hello Polyphony Marimba group. My name is Aliza and I am 14 years old. I saw you all perform in Santa Fe, in the Plaza on Thursday evening March 28th. You all brought light to my day. I attend the Denver School of the Arts so I really enjoy music and all art forms. I am also a lover of photography, you may have noticed me taking pictures. The performance that I saw was totally invigorating. There is this quote that I like, It goes, " Life would be a lot easier if there were pinatas strategically placed throughout the day" However for me, life would be awesome if a marimba group like you guys were strategically placed throughout the day. So, essentially I hope that the whole team gets to see this and know that you really make people's lives worth living. Thank you so much for all that you do.
I stumbled upon your band last summer whilst visiting Washington DC at Dupont Circle and was mesmerized by it. I had forgotten about the beauty of the music until now when I am back in DC after six months and decided to search for your group over the Internet. I am so blessed to find you again. I just downloaded your album from amazon. Thank you for the beautiful music especially "Dreams 12". God bless you all for the joy you have brought in people's lives.
Saw you guys performing at the plaza in Santa Fe last week and I have to say that you made our trip truly magical! Watching you guys perform was so much fun and your energy was clearly infectitious. I hope to see you guys perform again! Sending love from California!
Got to see you all in Fredericksburg last week! Had a wonderful time. You are all wonderful and sound AMAZING.
Polyphony Marimba rocks!! saw you in asheville and you really set the tone for the rest of our vacation!! Thanks and keep up the great music!
Loved you in Asheville May and July!! Please come back!
How amzing and heart-warming this music is!
Just left your concert in Dupont - you're sound is amazing!
Hello Marimba people. I wanted to say I was THRILLED to have you perform this past week at THE BASE at the YMCA here on Martha's Vineyard. It was an amazing experience, one that is just not easy to explain yet truly easy to embrace. The music was flawless and tight, innovative and exciting. The vibrations from your instruments are FELT more than heard - you hear the sound but the vibes enter your bones and tickle the skin. It is like a massage for your soul. I wish you the very best in your continued collaborations. You are truly a unique and vibrant group that exemplifies what generations can do together to inspire and excite those around them. Bravo and thank you!
I really LOVED seeing and hearing you in Chicago this weekend. Please come again!!
Had a blast seeing you today in Chicago!!! We helped Brian park today:) can't wait to see you guys again.

I loved your new CD and I was so happy to see you dedicated it to my cousin Miranda. I just wish she was still on this world with us so she could still be in this uniqe and intelligant band!!!
Hi, I saw you play in Santa Fe when I was on vacation. I asked if you'd been to Portland in 2010 because I'd seen a marimba band then and thought you might be the same one. Dig the CD thanks for the music on my all to short of stay in New Mexico JM Cleveland Ohio
Please be sure to let me know when you're going to be in the Washington, DC area.
Talant...talant...talant and I must say talant. We were so amazed in finding these talanted individuals in Santa Fe plaza, they should be in Carnegie Hall!! Everyone should have the opprtunity to listen to these accomplished musicians. We were totally thrilled and amazed.
you guys are magical...love the sound. Saw you in Sante Fe in April; was on vacation from Alaska. Hope you have CD's on here for sale.

Thank you for the music yesterday at the funeral,I loved it so much and it made me know how much you loved my cousin Miranda Chavez
We lvoe you and miss you Miranda!!!
Peter, Karyna, Raven, Brian, Ansel, Ethan, Harlin, so much love to all of you. Through this music you touched our daughter, us, and the lives of so many. We get through this, yes? Our beloved Miranda has gone on from this world, but her life was more complete because of all of you. We will not forget. Our love and support of Polyphony Marimba continues. Always, Karen and Mario
My condolences goes out to the Chavez Family. My prayers are with you and your family..
I'm feeling shock and grief for Miranda's loss. All our love and prayers for her friends, family and community from Bellingham.
I love you my beautiful granddaughter
I am holding you all in my heart and prayers. I don't know Miranda, but I know you are so sad....and I will help to hold that sadness. Continue to come back to the breath.....and the music. Warm regards
Peter, my condolences at the passing of Miranda Chavez. Sending love, light, and blessings to Miranda's family and friends.
love you all! am sitting here crying and listening and looking at the photos reading comments wishing I could come down..
I learned my first marimba in the summer of 2009 in a small group taught by Mikaela & Raven. Peter made me a beautful soprano marimba and I was off and running. Later in 2009 I joined Peter's intermediate group, where I have found much joy ever since. Peter, I feel so privileged to be on the receiving end of your inspired teaching and expertise! I had a brief chance to play with the amazing musicians of Zuva in 2010. This happy music carried me through two rounds of cancer and beyond. I want to continue to progress, to feel the music from the inside, and to abide in the great joy that it brings to my life.
Great music!! Great group. Congratulations
I love the little kid
The busking performance @ Burro Alley yesterday was thrilling to say the least. Peter, your direction and arrangements, are exciting to listen to... Raven, your compositions lift us out of the ordinary... and Dreams 12 felt like experiencing and entire symphony. Ansel's playing is breathtaking and Karyna's energy and accuracy is to be admired... and the supportive players make me want to play better. With much love and admiration
Peter, we are really enjoying the marimbas. They are beautiful to listen to as well as to behold. The same goes for Dan's baritone.
Peter, I like your website! The song you have playing is one of my absolute favourites. It puts a smile on my face every time I hear it.
I am part of most everything now!
look forward to hearing polyphony!
