OneBeat 2016: Othnell + Mukta
Tabla player Mukta Raste and mbira player, percussionist, and vocalist Othnell Moyo combine their rhythmic talents in this special duo moment, filmed atop the New Orleans levee / park area affectionately known as The End of the World. The five percussionists in this year’s OneBeat program spent a lot of time together trading music and techniques, and even formed a percussion ensemble that was featured in several performances.
