Mbira makers living in the country side have no knowledge of the Western musical scale. However, the mbira which they make tends to be in the B ♭ tuning for some reason. It is difficult to say whether the B ♭tuning was chosen for the music or if the music was orignially made in B ♭. Nevertheless, Nyanji strictly makes his mbira in the key of B ♭.
