Kariga Mombe Lessons 3: Kutsinhira Variations


Available as DVD or download

SKU: video-35201 Category:


This set of 9 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’), and ‘Kariga Mombe Lessons 2’, which taught high lines to the piece. The lessons in this set teach several versions of a second style of kutsinhira for the piece, with a different hand pattern.

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.
