About the event

With roots in rhythmic traditions around the globe, Robin’s solo show blurs the lines between jazz and folk as he carves out new territory for the marimba at the forefront of the sonic landscape.

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, Vancouver Island MusicFest, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues, Vancouver Folk Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Victoria Jazz Fest, Arts Wells Festival, and Burning Man.

This project aims to bring joy to folks through uplifting music and stories about how we are all human and more connected than we know. Robin believes music has the power to connect and bring people together and has devoted his life to that both through his performing work and also his educational work with young people. 

Presented by the Pacific Rim Arts Society
