Description

Malawi Grooves 1950 '57 '58 on LP

Malawi Grooves 1950, '57, '58 compiled by Hugh Tracey shows Malawi's rich groove culture. Despite Madonna's adoptive meanderings, Malawi is still not fashionable. Her crystal-clear recordings of incredibly hip music show that it should be for all music lovers, especially world music and African music fans; In fact for anyone looking for inspiration and beauty. This album with grooves by Cewa, Mang'anja, Tumbuka and Tonga musicians represents only some of Malawi's many rich musical cultures. Eight of the fifteen tracks on this album feature the bangwe board zither, an amazing seven-stringed instrument that is sometimes strummed and sometimes plucked. Also features pure wizardry by a tuned drum ensemble, a magical xylophone duet, an extraordinary big band of kazoos and exquisite acapella singing by both men and women. Recordings by Hugh Tracey. Features: Beti Kamanga, Limited Mfundo Phiri, Women At Visanaza, Elefala Jeremiah Mbewe, Bifi Phiri & Friend, Dedza Secondary School Boys, Benson Phiri & Band, Lonesi Chewane & Joni Hetera, Afredi Phiri and Tankadi Mbuluwundi & Friends.
