A small African marimba.

A marimba is a wooden percussion instrument with a keyboard whose bars are made of wood and with resonators. It is played by striking the wooden bars using mallets.

The marimba is found in Africa and in South America (it is the national instrument of Guatemala). It is also finding popularity in the United States as a solo instrument, in orchestras and in jazz groups.
