Dambatsoko Mbira Group: The Next Generation 2009


Available as CD or download

SKU: music-3465 Categories: ,


Every generation of the large extended Mujuru family plays mbira! These musicians, aged 20 to 30, heard plenty of mbira all their lives, and it really shows in their playing – a tight group with lots of energy. 20-year old Augustine’s excellent groove is a credit to father Fungai “Zhanje” Mujuru. Killian, Paradzayi (son of Musekiwa Mujuru), and Admire (son of Komboni Mujuru) take turns with mbira and hosho, and add enthusiastic vocals typical of their family’s ceremonies out in the village.
