mbira music

SEPTEMBER 20, 2006
Yours truly holding an mbira
I love playing the mbira. About a month ago, I had the great pleasure of jamming with the "Quarter-Tones" (James Steinberg, Rob Saunders, Leo Espinosa, Alan Witschonke and James Roldan) at James Steinberg's house in western Mass.

I've been playing mbira for 5-6 years. I discovered it through the music of Thomas Mapfumo from Zimbabwe and my good friend and mbira teacher, Solomon Murungu.

I'm a total newbie but I have a lot of fun and I rarely go anywhere without my instrument nearby. The first song most players learn is Karigamombe.(here's my funky rendition).
