Bangidza Lessons 1
Available as download
These 5 video lessons teach one of the many styles of the classic Shona mbira piece Bangidza (‘To Show, as in show how to do something’). Some of the other Bangidza styles will be taught in other MBIRA lesson sets. Because this lesson set was self-videoed during the Covid epidemic, it was not possible to include a video of the 2 parts played together. However, the parts were taught starting at exactly the same time in the cycle, so you will be able to put them together.
The lessons are taught in MBIRA workshop pitch (around B) nyamaropa tuning, but can be used with other nyamaropa tuning mbiras if you have pitch changing software.
You can download the videos one at a time, or all at once, but please complete downloading within 14 days of purchase before your access expires.
