Pasichigare: Mystic Mbira Music of Zimbabwe is a new double CD offering from world renowned musician Chartwell Dutiro in a collaboration with renowned mbira maker and player Sebastian Pott and Elmar Pohl as the Chipindura Mbira Trio.
The album is particularly special to Chartwell as it was recorded using the tuning that Chartwell grew up playing at ritual ceremonies in Zimbabwe. Talking about the experience of recording in this tuning for the first time Chartwell said; “During the recording I found myself totally uplifted! I had a feeling that the spirits of ancestors were in the recording room”.
The Shona lyrics are translated into German and English.
The album will be available for purchase on Amazon on the 31st of January.
Expect a review from Zvembira on the 30th.
