Description

Master mbira player and mbira maker Fradreck Mujuru explores a wide variety of the traditional Shona mbira repertoire here – playing 6 different Shona mbira tunings. From the sparkling Katsanzaira and Katsanzaira dongonda to the deep luscious Nemakonde and Dambatsoko tunings, Mujuru includes mbira standards, classic regional repertoire of the Mujuru family, and unusual pieces. Tracks 2,4,5, and 6 are played solo, and the remaining tracks are played with Erica Azim. Mujuru and Azim had been friends for 23 years at the time of this recording, collaborating not only musically, but also in supporting and promoting mbira music in Zimbabwe and around the world. [Total time: 79:53]
