Fantasy on a Shona Theme for Vibraphone (or Marimba) - ca. 5 Min.; 4 mallets; based on Mbira melody; easy to intermediate
A beautiful piece for solo vibraphone that originated from a mbira melody. The opening right-hand melody emulates the cyclical, rolling feel of Shona mbira music. That same feel is retained throughout the piece with the use of melodic lines that interlock, weave and constantly evolve.
