Description

The late Mondrek Muchena was a rock-solid kushaura player with a sunny personality. On this recording, he plays solo – a good opportunity for those with mbiras in “MBIRA workshop pitch” (around B) nyamaropa tuning to learn some of his variations. Tracks 1-4 and 8-10 are in nyamaropa tuning. Tracks 5-7 are in mavembe (gandanga) tuning. Mondrek was also an amazing singer, but most of this recording is mbira alone. [Total time: 76:04]
