Rattletree School of Marimba

Celebrate INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY — the Austin way — with a night of music and movement-building! Featured Bands are Paula Maya, Mafaro Marimba, Leti Garza and Julie Slim. 

Showcasing an eclectic mix of original works and covers reflecting the music of Brazil, Africa, France, the Middle East and several Pan American countries, we will connect our stories to those of millions of women around the globe in a rally cry for women’s equality.

Since 1975, International Women’s Day (IWD) has been a day for unity, reflection, advocacy, and action on access, security, and economic parity for women. Now more than ever, we must lift up the creative contributions of Austin women and demand a safe and equitable environment in which we can make art, live, and love free from violence and discrimination. This International Women’s Day, we must#PressforProgress

Presale tickets are on sale for $10 ($5 for children). The show is open to all ages and all genders. Local women’s wellness expert Dr. Deb Kern will emcee.
