Mbira Music at the Library

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Enjoy and learn about the traditional music of Zimbabwe.

Join Patience Chaitezvi Munjeri to experience the enchanting sound of traditional Zimbabwean mbira music and learn about its spiritual and cultural meaning. As a woman, she is rare among accomplished players of the Zimbabwean mbira dzaVadzimu (mbira of the ancestral spirits).

Mbira music is noted for its rhythmic complexity and ancient lineage. Munjeri's lifelong immersion in mbira music and deep Shona culture began with her mother, a traditional healer and medium. She lives and teaches in Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe.

This event is sponsored by Eugene Public Library and Kutsinhira Cultural Arts Center.
