A nice collection of songs from the timbila tradition of Mozambique.

    Excellent!!

    Excellent!!! Eduardo Durao, is the most international artist of Chopi music ¿ a tribe from the south of Mozambique with excellent performers of xylophone (Timbila). If you want to listen the African xylophone, there¿s no better place to start. Must listen it!!!!!
