Description

These 5 video lessons teach the classic Shona mbira piece Marenje in mavembe (also known as gandanga) tuning. Meanings include “a ceremony to pray for rain” and “wilderness (a place where ancient spirits may be found)”.

The pitch is around A, the pitch of mavembe/gandanga tuning sold on this website here, but you can check if your mbira is the same pitch with the mavembe/gandanga tuning in the audio recording here. The lessons can be used with other mavembe 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.
