About this website
D# / Eb (closest chromatic pitch)
This matepe got out of tune during transport, and most likely had been in Mr. Chawasarira's 'Low' tuning originally.
Tuned by Stefan Franke in a phrygian-like scale starting on the lowest right thumb key (effectively a Nyamaropa-like tuning for the keys matching the mbira dzavadzimu layout. This appears
to be a mode commonly used for tuning matepe - it's unlike all others in the archive and made AT not hear
as he would have expected it).
