Ephat Mujuru Ensemble – “Spirit of The People, The” – [Bardwells]

This record invokes the soothing and focused sound of the Mbira. The Dzavadzimu Mbira is a symbol of the traditional culture of Zimbabwe. The njari is a less common type of Shona mbira originally introduced from Mozambique. It was quite popular in Zimbabwe during the mid-20th century, and frequently featured there in radio shows during the 1950′s and 1960′s.The liner notes in the gate-fold are a great guide to this work.It helped me a lot to read each individual song’s synopsis while I listened and the dreamed scenarios described.
