Michael Williams

Michael Williams was inspired to play mbira when he studied with Paul Berliner (Soul of the Mbira) in Chicago in 1977, and played mbira with the Paul Winter Consort. He is a professor of percussion at Winthrop University in South Carolina, and is the author of what I understand to be the best introdution to the mbira, Learning Mbira: A Beginning. He has a great CD that blends mbira with Michael Spiro's bata rhythms.
