Description

Respected mbira player, and mbira maker, Rinos “Simboti” Mukuwurirwa plays the delightfully non-Western sounding Saungweme tuning, “the sound of bees”. Simboti studied mbira with the famed Mubayiwa Bandambira in his youth, and was taught to be able to start a piece one or two notes higher, or lower, than is usual. Thus, some of the very unusual versions of traditional mbira pieces on this recording. The last track is the tuning of Simboti’s mbira at the time of this recording. [Total time: 89:32]
