Product Description

I have recently returned from Zimbabwe where I had a chance to meet with Jimmy Chifamba and his band mate Mandi Sampson for a short performance which was just fantastic. I should have some video footage of his band playing their songs in the near future. Hand made from a block of wood that is carefully selected. This Mbira has 24 metal keys and this has a particularly great tone to it with decent sustain. When each key is made they use a master mbira to adjust each key to sound the same as that master mbiras keys ensuring it is tuned correctly. It has 4 adjust-a-chain bolts on the back used to loosen/tighten the keys to the board. This is a Large full size mbira, check the measurements below. This is the primary imstrument of the Shona Zezuru people of Zimbabwe and has been for hundreds of years where the instrument first originated. Be sure the Mbira you purchase is actually made in Zimbabwe as there are cheaper imitations around. In a typical mbira band performance there would be 4 mbira players, one playing bass, another playing rhythm, a sub rhythm player, a lead and finally a dancer! It is quite entrancing to hear the various sections played together by experienced players. Compare this to other mbiras online retailing for over $200. Made from the same Shona mbira masters as those were but at a fraction of the price. Being born and raised in Zim I can assure you this is an authentic Zim-bira! There are many links online showing one how to play the mbira The keys can be adjusted up/down on the board to alter the tune. This could make a great gift. Thanks for looking.
