Description

The late Ephat Mujuru was the first Zimbabwean gwenyambira (professional mbira player) to introduce traditional Shona mbira music to American audiences. He was also the leader of the group who popularized gandanga (also known as mavembe) tuning in modern Zimbabwe. Please forgive a few bumps in this casual recording – the wonderful playing is worth it. Proceeds of this CD help to support Ephat’s widow and children. [Total time: 44:50]
