Description

This is a recording of the first two evenings that Forward Kwenda and Erica Azim met (later to tour extensively together), and played mbira together from 1 to 3 am…recorded by a friend who was there in Harare at the time. Experience the dramatic changes of mood, from gentle to intense, from sweet to frenetic, from steady to soaring. Tracks 1-5 are in MBIRA workshop pitch (around B) nyamaropa tuning, and tracks 6-10 are in mavembe/gandanga tuning. [Total time: 109:27]
