Did Prince play the Marimba?

We all know Prince played and mastered many instruments, but does anyone know of any music or songs that Prince played the marima?

He played piano exceptionally well so yes, he could play the Marimba if he wanted to. Not sure if he ever did or recorded with one though. But seeing how the Marimba, Xylophone, Glockenspiels are all extensions of the piano, he could play them if he was so inclined.

Yes, but mostly on a Yamaha DX7. I imagine that isn't quite how the OP meant it, though.

Thank God he didn't. When I first visited Guatemala 16 1/2 years ago, I developed an intense dislike for marimba music.. barf
