Description

Enjoy Hakurotwi Mude’s stunningly powerful vocals on a selection of mbira classics. In the 1960’s and ‘70’s, Mude’s singing was famous throughout Zimbabwe, and in this 2000 recording, you can hear why. On this particular recording, Mhuri yekwaRwizi (literally “Family from Chief Rwizi’s place”) played ‘MBIRA workshop pitch’ (around B) nyamaropa tuning mbiras, so mbira students with this tuning can not only play along, they can imitate Mude’s vocables and improve their mbira singing!
