Description

Both master mbira players and master mbira makers, Fradreck Mujuru and Leonard Chiyanike have been close friends and mbira partners since they met 50 years ago! When Chiyanike’s father worked near the Mujuru village for some years, the boys’ fathers became mbira partners, and then the boys became mbira partners, too. Imagine them playing Kariga mombe 50 years ago, and how amazing (!!!) their Kariga mombe playing is now.

In Zimbabwe, one mbira song is often played for a long time before changing to another…30 minutes, an hour, or even more…particularly in a bira ceremony. Enjoy these satisfyingly long tracks. [Total time: 79:48]

Tracks

  1. Kariga mombe  [40:04]
  2. Taireva  [19:38]
  3. Taireva yekare “Gorekore”  [19:58]
