Joel is thankful to his ancestral spirits, and the spirits that led him to the mbira. He also thanks those spirits of the land of Zimbabwe (Mhondoro) and of the land where he is now. Thank you for meeting and watching over me. Let the mbira music come through clearly to all people. Let them hear the power and realize their greatness and the greatness of the power around them. May this music clearly help guide and heal. I thank you for giving me the job of playing the mbira for you/myself/us. Tinotenda. inotenda. Ndinotenda zvangu.
