Description

Taireva (“We used to tell you!”) is an ancient traditional Shona mbira piece, with many versions. One style with 3 mbira parts is presented here. You may wish to start by practicing together with the same part you are playing, also trying the track with hosho (gourd rattles), to hear where the beat fits with your part. Then, try practicing together with one of the parts you are not playing, until you can hear the two parts meld. As you become comfortable playing the parts, try the faster tempo tracks. [Total time: 79:51]
