The matepe is a complex, 26-key mbira from eastern Zimbabwe and the surrounding areas, which has its own unique repertoire and playing style. Featuring beautiful melodies and fast rhythms, it offers much new and interesting material. To date, the song Siti has been the only matepe song commonly played on marimba...until now! This workshop will be team taught by Jeff Brahe and Daniel Lockley.
Student Materials: A standard set of 7 marimbas will be available for this workshop
