Description

This was the first (and very popular!!!) MBIRA recording of the sweet SWEET vocals and excellent mbira of Matemai – Newton Gwara, now known as Newton Cheza Chozengwa. He plays on a nyamaropa dongonda tuning mbira – he calls this tuning njari makonde. He made this instrument himself, and it had many extra keys. Warning: this recording may be addictive! [Total time: 91:41]
