Description

Mellow, no-hurry, deep old men sound on low, low Dambatsoko tuning mbiras. Elder Mujuru mbira players Komboni Mujuru, Fungai Mujuru, Musekiwa Mujuru, and the late Cletos Manjengwa play Dambatsoko tuning mbira in various pairs. Recorded the afternoon after a bira ceremony, on a hilltop above Mujuru Village. The name of their mbira tuning – Dambatsoko – is a family reference to the burial place of their ancestors near rural Dewedzo, Zimbabwe. [Total time: 75:51]
