Event Information
Patience Chaitezvi Munjeri is one of the very few Zimbabwean women who grew up playing mbira regularly in traditional ceremonies, a role more commonly held by men in Shona culture. Patience is also an accomplished traditional dancer. As a university-educated and fluently Shona-English bilingual musician and cultural expert, she is uniquely suited to sharing traditional Shona music, dance, culture, and her experience as a female musician, with the world. In addition to playing mbira, she also plays kora. This Mandinkan instrument is built from a small calabash cut in half and covered with cow skin to make a resonator with a long hardwood neck. The skin is supported by two handles that run under it. It has 21 strings, each playing a different note. It supports a notched double free-standing bridge. It doesn't fit into any one category of musical instruments, but rather several, and must be classified as a "double-bridge-harp-lute". THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
