Super Marimba is an amplified marimba with various looping and distortion pedals and hundreds of home-made mallets.  Grooves Magazine hails Payton’s groundbreaking Super Marimba performances as “Superhuman.”



Samadhi brings together the great classical traditions of North India and the West.  Payton collaborates with four of the greatest performers of our time: Sanhita Nandi on voice, Ashley Bathgate on cello, Michael Harrison on piano, and Nitin Mitta on tabla.
