Lynne Duddy is in love with the music of Africa.
She plays Zimbabwean-style marimbas which were introduced in the 1960s to play interpretations of mbira dzavadzimu as well as nyunga nyunga and matepe music.
Lynne is also learning to master the mbira dzavadzimu, an instrument known as the "voice of the ancestors." The mbira is the national instrument of Zimbabwe and has been played by the Shona people of Zimbabwe for thousands of years. It is a traditional instrument used by storytellers.
