Hungwe: Mbira Music of Zimbabwe

Hungwe presents the sacred spirit music of the Zimbabwean mbira dzavadzimu. Born into a family of great mbira players in Mwangara village, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwean mbira master Musekiwa Chingodza began playing at age five. Chingodza and Eastman faculty Jennifer Kyker have performed together since 1995, and they are joined in this performance by vocalist/percussionist Memory Makuri. “Our music is both medicine and food, as mbira has the power to heal and to provide for people," says Musekiwa. "Mbira pleases both the living and the dead.”
