Chipembere Lessons 1 – Mavembe/Gandanga Tuning
Available as download
These 6 video lessons teach the classic Shona mbira piece Chipembere (‘Rhinoceros’) in mavembe (also known as gandanga) tuning.
The pitch is around A, the pitch of mavembe/gandanga tuning sold on this website here, but you can check if your mbira is the same pitch with the mavembe/gandanga tuning in the audio recording here. The lessons can be used with other mavembe 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. We are not offering a playable DVD of this lesson set, but if you need a data DVD with the files, please Contact Us to arrange that.
