Mbira and New Technologies

Flame Keepers on WordPress

Moderation is always key. At one point in the 80`s , someone came up with a fancy idea of the headless frat board for the guitar and the ridiculous ‘ mid life crisis’ electric drums.
We all know how that story went.

Bottom line , there is a reason the piano still takes as much space as it did 400 years ago and drum kits are still a pain in the butt to transport.

Music is art and we have to be careful how we modernize the Sanza/mbira without eradicating it`s authenticity.

Why do yo think musicians don`t strap on the invisible microphone like ones used on interviews on live shows?
