FAIRBANKS, Canada: What do you get when you put a project manager for a Homer construction company, a couple of bookstore owners, a newspaper editor, a boat captain, a nurse and an accountant together? 
Add a set of Africa marimbas and you get Shamwari Marimba, one of three African marimba ensembles in Homer. The group will perform in Fairbanks at the opening day ceremonies of the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival and are hoping to inspire Fairbanks residents to create their own group.
