Ndongosienda – Tradition Mbira Group 1996



This rocking mbira group includes ngoma (drums), and you can really hear them on the first two tracks. This unreleased (or briefly released???) studio recording has plenty of excellent singing – lead singing by Sample Chigumbu and response from others. G pitch nyamaropa tuning, so those with that tuning can play along. [Total time: 31:24]
