Building a shelter
posted:
Photoshop doodle "Nhemamusasa" by me.
"Nhemamusasa" is a Shona word that describes the building of a temporary shelter out of brush whilst one is on a journey or out working in the far-away fields. It is also the title of a traditional mbira song from Zimbabwe that I've been tinkering with lately. There are many variations. I've recorded a snippet of one I call the "high version" because it only uses one key in the base register. It's a quiet, repetitive (and poorly played and recorded) but still kind of nice --if you like this sort of thing.
