Mating?

I have a male and what I believe is female, at least has the markings and coloration melanochromis chipokae. They have been going in circles under a rock outcrop and the male has been laying on the sand vibrating rapidly. The "female" Stays right behind him. Is this mating behavior?

Forgot to say they are African Malawi cichlids but if you read the first post you probably already knew.
