Based in Edmonton-Canada, Mbira Renaissance gives original flair to the rich, ancient, classical musical genre that is mbira. Maintaining the genres’ musical traditions, the group sings primarily in the Shona language of Zimbabwe. The music is delicate yet upbeat, the bass lines are reminiscent of the great chimurenga sounds of Thomas Mapfumo, reggae rifts are interwoven with jazzy melodies and the polyrhythm of the traditional Zimbabwean mbira sets the delicate foundation for the pieces.
