Sangwani Munthali music fans in Blantyre, Mzuzu and Lilongwe have been accorded an opportunity to witness the artist performing on stage for the first time after a five-year break as he launches third album Ndipulumutseni alongside the DVD for his second album, Themba.
The city to city performance is expected to start on 27th May 2016 at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) before two other performances in Blantyre on 28th May 2016 at Robins Park and on 4th June 2016 at Boma Park, Mzuzu Hotel.
Sangwani last held live performances about 5 years ago, and the break has forced him to hold the three performances consecutively in three major cities as a way of launching his comeback after a well-deserved long break.
It was surely a well-deserved long break as he took his time to compose and arrange his songs for Ndipulumutseni album. And this can be appreciated from the quality and content in this album.
Sangwani has assembled a talented and experienced team of artists for these performances among them guitarist Goma Nyondo, lead guitarist Ernest Ikwanga, Percussionist Daniel Thom (aka super DT), and the ever amazing Karonga based brass trio, Lusubilo band members.
Most of these artists have performed for Wambali Mkandawire for some years. If the 19th March 2016 performance by Sangwani and his team at Protea Ryalls Hotel is anything to go by, the people should expect electrifying performances on the above mentioned dates.
Sangwani is set to perform all the songs from the Ndipulumutseni album and some from the Themba album.
The Ndipulumutseni album was recorded in Namibia with professionals from Zimbabwe, Namibia and Democratic Republic of Congo. It was produced by Derik Antonio Villas at Namibia Broadcasting Cooperation Studio 2 and mastered by Burton Reid in South Africa.
The Themba album was recorded and produced in Namibia by Namibia based Majumi Gondwe of Maj Beats Productions. The Executive producer for both was Vitumbiko Mumba, and his manager is Harry Chima.
Sangwani Munthali is a gospel artist who describes his music as Advanced Afro-Contemporary music which is a fusion of Afro-Jazz, Afro-Pop and African Traditional beats with more bias towards Afro-Jazz. He describes himself as a minister of the gospel through music.
His music is biblically rich in content. He used to be a backing vocalist for Mahara Mhango and later Rev. Chimwemwe Mhango. He later stayed with the Afro-Jazz maestro himself, Wambali Mkandawire for 3 years from whom he got the inspiration of what genre of music he should take.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
