The star players of this festival are the women

The melodious percussion instruments marimba and vibraphone take center stage during the Amsterdam Marimba Weekend. Ancient variants are discussed, such as the Afro-Caribbean Marimbula and Calabash, but also the latest and most advanced instruments.

Under the name Ladies Vibe Out! we give all the space to the female star players Patricia Brennan, Sasha Berliner and Tatiana Koleva. Special guests include Zhivko Vasilev, Noel Brennan and Vernon Chatlein. You can buy tickets for this festival via the ticket link .

Patricia Brennan

Marimbist and vibraphonist Patricia Brennan has been widely hailed as one of the instrument's new leading figures, as noted by The New York City Jazz Record. She grew up in Veracruz and immersed herself in the rich musical culture of Mexico during her youth. Patricia's search for freedom in expression led to expanding the range and possibilities of her instruments through improvisation, her own compositions and live electronics. The result is an enchanting sound world where she takes us with her electro-acoustic duo MOCH.

Sasha Berliner

She has already been described as a 'young master of the sticks' by JazzTimes. Twenty-something Sasha Berliner is an award-winning vibraphonist and composer based in New York. She has already shared the stage with Christian McBride, Tyshawn Sorey, Marcus Gilmore and Cecile Mclorin Salvant, among others. Sasha recently released her second album Onyx, described as a 'vibrant, unapologetic avant-garde recording.' During AMW, Sasha plays with a band specially put together for the occasion.

Tatiana Koleva

Recognized as a virtuoso and innovator in the field of marimba and percussion, Tatiana Koleva has premiered more than 130 diverse works created specifically for her solo and ensemble projects. Her performance style is described by the press as 'very energetic with intriguing rhythms and surprising musical developments.' She is the founder and artistic director of the Amsterdam Marimba Weekend and the award-winning formation The (Youth) Percussion Pool. She forms a new duo with Zhivo Vasilev, inspired by their Bulgarian rhythms and vocal music.
