Description

Ambuya Botsa is the feisty woman we all want to be at age 90 – singing her heart out and dancing – and still strong enough to work in her village fields and enjoy her beer. Here she sings together with her immensely talented youngest son, as he plays both mavembe (gandanga, tracks 1-4) and nyamaropa (tracks 5-7) tuning mbira, and adds his vocals to hers. Mmmm, not only big love, but also big music between this mother and son in Murehwa! [Total time: 76:28]
