Is there a musical instrument able to imitate the sound of the organ? Perhaps some of wind instruments, since the organ has plenty of pipes. Or is it the accordion? It is the organ’s closest relative and also belongs to the family of keyboard pipe instruments. However the experts will nominate an absolutely unexpected candidate: marimba. A certain combination of mallets can make us confuse its deep timbre with that of the Church organ. Besides marimba is a sort of bridge between musical styles. It is present in jazz, rock and academic music. It may also be heard in a Catholic cathedral. Its sound twinkles, either merging with the organ or contrasting with it. The participation of the harp will impart to the concert a special unearthly flavour.
