Biografia do Artista para Mbira Dzenharira
Mbira DzeNharira' was formed by Tendayi Gahamadze in 1987 in Norton, a town 40 km west of Harare. To date they have released 11 CD and 3 DVD albums.
They revolutionized the sound of mbira by electrifying and rearranging the instruments into bass baritone, rhythm and lead mbira. The ancient 22 key mbira dzavadzimu was a three octave instrument with the keys on the right standing for lead keys, on the upper left is the rhythm section, and on the bottom left is the bass section.
This made it possible for one mbira player to be able to perform solo at ceremonies and gatherings, and sometimes it could be two or three players rotating on those three octaves.
Mbira DzeNharira decided to increase the number of octave to six using four mbiras on the mbira dzavadzimu.
Complex rhythms were born and mbira music took a more vibrant and multi rhythmic style which completely changed the sound.
The current members of the group who have been together for eleven years are Tendayi Gahamadze who composes, sings and plays the baritone mbira ( Dongonda), Clemmence Rice who plays the bass mbira (Nhovapasi), Takawira Devera who plays lead mbira (Nheketo) and Tendai (Netombo) Kazuru who plays shakers ( hosho). All the players of instruments except the bass man are also singers.
As the group ages it matures more in depths of Shona music.
