ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Timbila is a New York-based Afrodelic band that merges traditional music from southern Africa with East Village rock. Its American founders met in Zimbabwe in 1997 and have been creating together ever since, building new creations around the timbila xylophone of Mozambique and the metal-pronged mbira of Zimbabwe. Chartwell Dutiro is a maverick, master mbira player from Zimbabwe with a story that begins in the sacred musical rituals of his home village, passes through the international limelight of the world music years in the company of Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited, and continues today in the U.K. Chartwell and Timbila began collaborating in 2012, and have developed an entrancing, expansive repertoire together. This album shows two sides of the collaboration: first, Timbila backing Chartwell in new interpretations of ancient Zimbabwean songs; then, Chartwell acting as producer for Timbila’s original compositions and arrangements. This two way musical encounter has yielded an unexpected delicacy…sadza (the staple food of Zimbabwe) with the head of a mouse!
