Otto & The Mutapa Calling is a lively London based marimba band playing energetic, joyful music from Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, including folk songs, original songs and popular southern African covers. The band's set-up includes soprano, tenor and baritone marimbas, mbira, hosho, drumming and singing, with both traditional and contemporary dances. The marimba band’s sound is full of energy and pulsating rhythms - and their music shares the rich cultures, histories and stories of the people of southern Africa through rhythm, song and dance.

The band was officially formed in 2017 by band leader, Otto Gumaelius, who started playing African music on the marimba in the late 1990s in Botswana, and the band is comprised of musicians from Botswana, Zimbabwe and the UK.

Otto & The Mutapa Calling offer a unique and colourful experience to live music lovers and they are the only active professional marimba band of their kind in all of Europe.
