mbiraNYC Duo brings the enchanting sounds of mbira music to senior centers, nursing homes, libraries, schools and hospital settings throughout the New York area. With melodies that are delicate and soothing one moment and infused with toe-tapping rhythm the next, the mbira uplifts the spirits and brightens the hearts of all who hear it. Our performances are engaging and participatory, with audiences encouraged to clap, sing and dance.
