Traditionally, Marimba players in Costa Rica have been men. Older men, with the traditional hat, playing out tunes in fairs, events and the streets of downtown San Jose.

On Wednesday, while strolling the ‘Bulevar’, I was caught by surprise as the “men” gave way to a new face of Marimba players: two young women. They were awesome, it stopped me in my tracks.

Here are the photos, in front of the Banco Nacional kiosk, diagonal to the Banco Central building, at Calle 2.
