Videos I filmed @ Womex 2010

The emblematic sound of the m’bila has been part of the cultural identity of the Vachopi people of Southern Mozambique for over 400 years. The rolling rhythms produced on this wooden xylophone (plural is timbila) speak of a tradition of dance, chant, poetry and music that has flourished in the face of invasions. Cheny Wa Gune is the young m’bila maestro who is carrying the tradition forward.
