Typically, Nhapitapi starts with the sound of mbira and marimba both energizing and healing. Upon the mbira and marimba they stack up vocals, shakers, hand drum, guitar, and bass and drum set. The effect is magical and invigorating, when the time is right they throw energetic dances to complete the party. Their music is a journey through space and time. While their sound begins with old voices of the African continent, they do not end there but travel seamlessly to contemporary sounds of Afro-jazz, funk, rock and reggae yet retaining the authenticity of an African dance ceremony. Many have found the music to have a universal appeal both to those who know it well, and to people who have never heard this kind of "Ancestral" music. We invite you to feel the breath of the lion on your neck.
