Description

This mbira group is keeping the sweet sounds of mbira alive in Masvingo, a small city close to the Great Zimbabwe ruins, seat of ancient Shona kingdoms. Most of the tracks feature two mbiras frolicking together with no vocals, but a special treat is the long long Nyamaropa where Tafadzwa Matamba adds a third mbira part and gentle vocals. Mmmm… [Total time: 79:34]
