Robin Layne and the Rythm Makers

With roots in rhythmic traditions around the globe this groove heavy ensemble

delivers music that transcends the bounds of tradition, blurring the lines between

jazz and folk as they carve out new territory for the marimba at the forefront of the

sonic landscape.

"Deep dance vibes suitable for any crowd." 

Vancouver International Jazz Festival

Over the past decade and a half, percussionist Robin Layne has steeped himself in

rhythmic traditions around the world from Cuba to West Africa to Mexico and

beyond. He brings these influences to bear in his compositions that are inspired by

his travels. Robin has worked with many of Canada's finest global artists and toured

throughout China, Europe, Mexico, USA and Canada. Highlights include Nanjing Jazz

Festival, Hildesheim Jazz Festival, Victoria Jazz Fest, Arts Wells Festival, Vancouver

Island MusicFest, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues, Vancouver Folk Festival, Vancouver

International Jazz Festival.

"Marimba is probably the most sensual and harmonious of all percussion

instruments and Robin Layne one of its best ambassadors."

Marc Fournier / Music Journalist/ host at CBC Radio Canada
