Tendai ‘Baba’ Maraire – Wona Baba Maraire (Hearth Music)

Baba MaraireDebut by the son of composer & arranger Dumisani Maraire, who is credited with making traditional Zimbabwean Shona music accessible to Western audiences. Tendai (like his sister Chiwoniso) continues this tradition, mixing his mbira (thumb piano) with ngoni, traditional percussion, & complex group vocals in a culturally evocative polyrhythmic musical experience.
