Kariga Mombe Lessons 2: High Lines


Available as DVD or download

SKU: video-35200 Category:


This set of 9 video mbira lessons is a sequel to MBIRA’s ‘First Mbira Lessons’, which taught the basic parts to the classic piece Kariga Mombe (‘Undefeatable’, literally ‘One who can throw a bull to the ground’). These lessons teach 4 different high lines for the piece – high melodies using the small right hand keys played by the finger – with both the kushaura and kutsinhira mbira parts.

The lessons are taught in MBIRA workshop pitch (around B) nyamaropa tuning, but can be used with other nyamaropa tuning mbiras if you have pitch changing software.

You can download the videos one at a time, or all at once, but please complete downloading within 14 days of purchase before your access expires. Also available as a DVD.
