Description

Ambuya Mugwagwa is the medium of the spirit of Chinemwenje – “The One Who Brings Light” – as well as a traditional healer. Here, you’ll discover that she is also a soulful, spirited singer at the age of 81! The Mujuru family are always ready to play mbira, in their luscious low Dambatsoko tuning, and are beautifully represented here by Munyaradzi and Augustine (son of Fungai), with Garnet Jemwa adding hosho. Munyaradzi also adds spirited vocals. [Total time: 79:22]
