Fans of unusual mbira tunings will love this variant of mavembe/gandanga tuning, played by Henry Gandidzanwa from the rural Ringa area of Zimbabwe. Enjoy his quirky versions of mbira classics, including a rocking Kariga mombe! Between the interesting tuning and the slightly different style, standard mbira pieces have a whole new flavor. This is a great example of how the same mbira pieces, played for over 1,000 years, sound different in each village. [Total time: 79:54]
