Микс – Abraham Dumisani Maraire - "Chemutengure" 1972YouTube.

Abraham Dumisani Maraire (27 December 1944 – 25 November 1999), known to friends as "Dumi", was a master performer of the mbira, a traditional instrument of the Shona ethnic group of Zimbabwe. He specialized in the form of mbira called nyunga nyunga, as well as the Zimbabwean marimba. He introduced Zimbabwean music to North America, initiating a flourishing of Zimbabwean music in the Pacific Northwest that continues into the 21st century.

Your father Abraham Dumisani Maraire was a legendary mbira player-that instrument has been in your family for generations. Did he teach you? Maraire: He’s legendary but he never taught me how to play. Maraire: Right, so the thing is with mbira-I was self-taught. I was around music a lot, and I just picked up stuff and started playing it. As the story goes, I was 18-months old and my parents were teaching a class, and I got up and started playing the drums and that was it. It immediately threw me into the fire. That story started from one conversation in that village in that hut, the prophecy, the rest of it is what you make of it. Paste: So you’d say your musical legacy was more something you felt, not so much something you were ‘taught?’ Maraire: In the case of my family, my grandparents and parents were all teachers.
