Description

A quiet, humble, hard-working farmer, Leonard Chiyanike is also an outstanding world-class mbira player, and a lyrical singer as well. Due to his father’s construction work, Chiyanike grew up in various parts of Zimbabwe, and thus can play mbira in a wide variety of traditional styles. His fondness for mucheje dongonda tuning, played solo on Chipindura, dates back to living in a northern area of Zimbabwe, where that type of tuning is played, during one period. Chiyanike likes to play each song for a hour or so, as is done in the traditional ceremonies that are his usual venue…but he restrained himself to around 20 minutes each, in consideration of American audiences! On tracks 1-3, played on nyamaropa tuning, he is joined by Erica Azim’s mbira and Joseph Saine’s very traditional, very groovin’, hosho (rattles). [Total time: 79:47]
