Kevin Nathaniel


Kevin Nathaniel is trained in the ancient master-disciple tradition of the mbira and percussion. He has performed with master musicians from a variety of world cultural traditions. His work with the mbira and the shekere is extensive, earning him international recognition.

Yale University graduate Kevin Nathaniel has been studying, playing, and building mbiras since 1982. He worked closely with legendary Zimbabwean mbira master Ephat Mujuru, as well as with masters Dumisani Maraire and Zeleka Jenkins. He is a founding member of Spirit Ensemble, a group that pioneered the use of mbiras on the New York world music scene.

Kevin has composed and recorded for several projects including Alice Walker's "Possessing The Secret Of Joy" and the film "Beloved", starring Oprah Winfrey.

His workshops and lecture demonstrations have been presented at prestigious institutions including Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, The Guggenheim Museum, The Juilliard School and The University of Michigan. His music is available on the Narada collection “African Voices” (at record stores worldwide).
