“Soothing yet adventurous ...Elemental hits the sweet spot.”

-Phoenix New Times


Avant-Garde percussionist Marilyn Clark Silva blends balletic gestures
with mesmerizing sounds to create richly immersive performances that can be experienced through the eyes and ears equally. Her original music for marimba blends elements of classical, jazz, contemporary, and resonant soundscapes, which can be heard on her latest album, elemental, which was released in 2019. Marilyn has a Doctorate (DMA) in percussion performance, a 600 hour certification as a yoga teacher, and two spoiled rescue dogs.
