MUS 16
Zimbabwean Music Experience Winter 2023

Class Details

This course focuses on teaching Zimbabwean music performance. Besides introducing a selection of basic songs on mbira, marimba, and voice, the course explores the orchestration of such music on other instruments. To utilize some participants’ previous experience’ the course will incorporate brass, woodwinds, strings, and additional percussion. The course content will trace both continuity and change in music from traditional song styles into African popular music. Besides the instrumental practice of the class, we will watch on YouTube and other videos the collaborative nature of this music. The class will end with an end-of-winter Study performance by the participants.
