08/17 | Sacred Sounds of the Shona MBIRA of Zimbabwe, with Victoria Kruszewski


an intimate solo concert of Shona mbira music given by local artist Victoria Kruszewski.  Victoria sings beautiful traditional Shona melodies and accompanies herself polyrhythmically and melodically on the mbira.  The only percussion that is played alongside are some gourd rattles called hosho.  It is a trance-inducing, ancestor-channeling tradition many generations old.  It is so soothing and relaxing, yet so many sublte things that happen that are so stimulating to the sensitive listeners, this evening is sure to be a most enjoyable, inspiring, relaxing eveing of magnificent acoustic solo song and thumb piano magic.
