Description

Katsanzaira is a sweet high mbira tuning — the name refers to the first gentle rain before a storm hits. The Dorian mode intervals of this tuning give a haunting flavor to many mbira pieces. This recording includes standards from the ancient Shona mbira repertoire, and an unusual piece, Zvarambwa, which has a 22 beat cycle consisting of three phrases of 8, 6, and 8 beats. Listen to Dangurangu and see if you can tell when Forward is no longer there and the spirits are playing mbira! And Taireva yepasi is an oh, so sweet favorite. [Total time: 79:59]
