A Tapestry of Sacred Music Tapestry Explorations: African Thumb Piano Workshop

For thousands of years, the mbira (thumb piano) has been played by the Shona people living in Zimbabwe, Africa. This musical instrument is part of an ancient tradition and used in a wide variety of functions in Shona society, including entertainment as well as spiritual practices. A rather unique instrument, the mbira makes beautiful sounds when its metal keys are plucked with the thumbs and fingers, producing music that is simultaneously simple, and yet deeply complex. Compositions for the mbira are usually quite short, but the techniques for producing variations are practically limitless. Join mbira player Ty Constant in a beginners' workshop to learn the basics of playing this African thumb piano, know more about its techniques, and listen to the music. Mbiras will be provided.
