Matthew Ruswa & Biggy Mavunga 2009: Nyamaropa Tuning Mbira

Description

These two musicians from the rural Ringa area south of Harare play a wide selection of the mbira classics, most with fairly standard kushaura parts, and enjoyable yet not too complex kutsinhira parts. Because the instruments are in “MBIRA workshop pitch” (near B) nyamaropa tuning, and there is total separation of the parts (kushaura left/kutsinhira right), mbira students will enjoy working with this one, and playing along. [Total time: 68:57]
