This workshop is for mbira owners who want guidance in taking loving care of their instruments. The teacher---who formerly tuned mbiras for Mhuri Yekwa Muchena in Zimbabwe---will give pointers on tuning, improving the sound of the mbira keys and maintaining the appearance and functionality of the buzzers and gwariva (soundboard). There will be a discussion and demonstration of all the tools necessary for tuning mbiras. Bring your questions and your mbiras that need tweaking.
Bring your mbiras (any tuning) and paper and pencil for taking notes.
