My name is Michael Williams. I teach percussion at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and I’ve been playing mbira since 1992. You can follow my musical activities at my website, http://bmichaelwilliams.com.
I’m very grateful for Taku’s invitation to share in Zvembira’s blog. I thought I would begin with a video introduction. This is an interview with my former student and current mbira partner, Adam Snow, from 2007.
I hope to visit you periodically with some of my stories of the mbira road I’ve been on these 20+ years. Thanks for the opportunity to share!
