This workshop teaches a marimba arrangement based on mbira parts taught by Cosmas Magaya. The arrangement begins with a call and response from one side of the ensemble to the other, with two sopranos and a tenor providing a trio on each side speaking back and forth to one another. Wanda feels the swirling of the song is like being "inside the head" of a mbira player during a bira (ceremony). This arrangement is in the key of C. This workshop will be taught on marimbas without F#s.
You may listen to a sound file of a somewhat more advanced version of the arrangement through a link on this webpage.
