SKU: music-3427 Categories: ,


Talented Chivhu mbira player and vocalist Goliath Rambakudzibwa plays solid, satisfying versions of the classics on a low-pitched nyamaropa tuning mbira. His rolling style incorporates interesting improvisation without startling. Relaxed vocals fit in nicely with his style, making the whole even more satisfying. Tracks 1 and 5 are excellent mbira adaptations of traditional vocal pieces. [Total time: 68:38]
