Music at the Dancing Fish: KA1
May 31 @ 5:30 pm
KA1 is Leslie Yingling on the marimba, mbira, and vocals; Dyanne Harshman on the marimba, mbira, and vocals; Alec Buchanan on the marimba; Kevin Horan on the marimba and conga; Chris Harshman on the marimba and saxophone; Eric Conn on the guitar; Ron Rossel on the bass; Fredde Butterworth on the drums; and Dana Moffett on the marimba, mbira, and vocals. Dana is a long-time teacher of marimba, and regularly hosts visiting musicians from Zimbabwe.
KA1 plays Zimbabwe style music, similar in style to the great Thomas Mapfumo, which is a mix of traditional and new music. It is very percussive and emphasizes a strong, steady beat.
“This style of music is different than most western popular music in that it has many layers of rhythm happening together,” says drummer Fredde Butterworth, “It’s totally made for dancing.”
