Mbira photography

People loooove Nhemamusasa, either playing or listening.

It is probably one of the most familiar tunes to both mbira enthusiasts and non-enthusiast.  When spotted by Zimbabweans who are not really into mbira, my instruments regularly result in my enduring of a rendition or two of Nhemamusasa.

Here we go, a small selection plus a tutorial video to get you started if you can’t join in the fun yet.
