Your first mbira lesson! You will learn how to hold the instrument, listen to mbira, and basic concepts, as well as learning to play the mbira piece Kariga mombe ("Undefeatable"). If you are thinking of learning mbira, but have never tried it, this workshop is for you.
Nyamaropa tuning mbiras will be provided. Grow out your thumbnails and right forefingernail, and/or by a set of picks at http://mbira.org/catalog.asp?cat=mbira-accessories (item 5000 or 5001) - to avoid sore thumbs your first time.
