Soul Of Mbira – Traditions Of The Shona People

LP (Item 78020) Nonesuch, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+
One of three volumes documenting the beautiful Mbira music of the Shona of Zimbabwe. The thumb piano is an instrument common throughout the Southern portion of the African continent, but all of the music documented here and on the other two volumes is centered around pulsing arpeggios that create a rippling background along with the Hosho, a shaker, for raw folk melodies sung either solo or by groups on these nine pieces: "Nhemusasa", "Taireva", "Nyamropa", "Kuyada Hove Kune Mazove", "Mbiriviri", "Nhimutimu", "Nyamropa Yevana Va VaMushonga", "Dangu Rangu" and "Kumkudo".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
