Many of the tunes we play were brought to this country by Dumi Maraire who taught in the northwest of Washington. The rest are originals written by various band members or the group as a whole. In 1985, members of the "Grin and Bear It String Clan" encountered the marimba version of this music at the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle, caught the spark, and the Tropical Montana Marimba Ensemble was born.

Chiwoniso Maraire (5 March 1976 – 24 July 2013) was a Zimbabwean singer, songwriter, and exponent of Zimbabwean mbira music. She was the daughter of Zimbabwean Mbira Master and teacher Dumisani Maraire (and former officer in the Zimbabwe Ministry of Sports and Culture in the early 1980s). Describing the mbira, an instrument traditionally used by male musicians, she said, " is like a large xylophone. It is everywhere in Africa under different names: sanza, kalimba, etc.

Abraham Dumisani Maraire, known to friends as "Dumi", was a master performer of the mbira, a traditional instrument of the Shona ethnic group of Zimbabwe. He specialized in the form of mbira called nyunga nyunga, as well as the Zimbabwean marimba. He introduced Zimbabwean music to North America, initiating a flourishing of Zimbabwean music in the Pacific Northwest that continues to spread in the 21st century. He began learning music from family members, and later at the college of music in Bulawayo. Maraire returned to Zimbabwe in 1982 to develop an ethnomusicology program at the University of Zimbabwe. Four years later, he was back in Seattle, teaching and earning his own doctorate in ethnomusicology at the University of Washington, after which he returned again to teach at the University of Zimbabwe.
