Description

Mupfure Mbira Group from Mudzimurema Village in Chihota Communal Area consists of 3 mbira players (ages 64 to 70), a singer, and a hosho player (both younger). Enjoy their use of 3 different interlocking parts in many of these Shona mbira classics. The group’s tuning is close enough to G that those with G pitch nyamaropa tuning mbiras will be able to play along with them. [Total time: 77:06]
