Description

Never before released, this unusual recording features transcendant mbira player Forward Kwenda playing in Dambatsoko tuning. That this low-pitched tuning is not one he usually plays makes no difference at all, as spirits take his fingers dancing through mbira standanrds and a couple of unusual pieces. Forward’s gentle vocals alternate between low, low bass lines and high, sweet lines…almost as if two people were singing. [Total time: 69:58]
