You are here: Home About Us Cultural Marimba


Rhenish has two marimba bands - Ziyakhipa and Masikhulisane. Under the guidance of our new coach and ex-Rhenisher Lusi Seasanti, and with the support and guidance of our wonderful liaison teacher, Ms Linda de Villiers, the marimba bands have many opportunities to experience the joy of playing, and playing well.

The marimba bands practice in the early mornings – at 6:30am – but the early morning practices pay off as both marimba bands enjoy deafening applause from audiences at their performances. Annual school events at which both bands played include Rhenish’s birthday and the prestigious Rhenish Schools’ Prestige Concert at the Endler Hall at the University of Stellenbosch’s Conservatorium.  The Ziyakhipa marimba band also play at the Rhenish Open Day and the Cultural and Service Awards Evening.

2016 was a year of great exposure for the Rhenish Marimba bands. A German gentleman invited the Ziyakhipa band to play at his wife’s 60th birthday celebration. The occasion took place at the lovely Zorgvliet wine farm and the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The Ziyakhipa marimba band also had the privilege of playing at the first ever docking of the Logos Hope ship in Cape Town at the V&A waterfront. The Marimbas also perform at the annual Golf Day in the fourth term.
