Jenaguru - Full Moon Marimba

In Zimbabwe, everyone dances to the spirited rhythms of traditional music! Jenaguru, a 10-member marimba band, draws on the influence of traditional Zimbabwean mbira music to create jubilant dance music on marimbas. From the playful song Kamba to the hauntingly beautiful Todzungaira, the complex melodies and rhythms of the marimbas, vocals, and the strong pulse of the hosho and drums stir and inspire the audience.

Jenaguru, a performing ensemble of Kutsinhira, has performed throughout Oregon, including Eugene's First Night, the Eugene Celebration, Saturday Market, the Bach Festival, the Zimbabwean Music Festival, public schools, and for many community events and private celebrations.
