Description

Musicians Benhura and Chigonga live in the Epworth suburb of Zimbabwe’s capital Harare – part of the urban area where ancient traditional mbira music is not always welcomed…thus their chosen title, showing their defiant preference for mbira! Both are accomplished mbira players, and also add vocals on most of the tracks. Benhura’s vocals are interestingly hoarse, evoking memories of morning coming after singing all night at a bira ceremony, and Chigonga’s vocals are more smooth. Benhura is the younger brother of late great mbira player and vocalist Silas Madziva. Nyamaropa tuning. [Total time: 79:56]
