Description

This archival recording of Muchatera Mujuru and his group in 1971 features 5 and 6 mbira players playing at one time – each playing a different interlocking part in the family’s low-pitched Dambatsoko tuning. Muchatera Mujuru was a spirit medium, and the recording was made inside his very large banya (house for ceremonies) by Robert Garfias. Muchatera’s passion for mbira music was such that, many years after his death, his descendants are the largest extended family of mbira players in Zimbabwe…many of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren continue to play these songs today.
