The Great Angels Choir, known for popular songs like, Ndiyende bwanji, Sindingathe and Gwireni dzanja, has assured its fans of more fireworks and soul touching songs in their forthcoming fourth album.
Speaking after mesmerising Kasungu fans with their irresistible dancing skills during the Kamuzu Banda memorial music festival at Kasungu community ground on Tuesday, the choir’s Music Director, Ephraim Zonda said all is set for the next album which is to come with a mature touch as they are growing up musically.
“This new album will cater for all people’s spiritual needs, including messages of hope and it will continue to preach about the good news the Lord,” he said.
The Music Director continued to say they have already finished composing songs and are only remaining with the music demos and are ready for studio work.
The choir has not released an album in three years, but Zonda said the break was a deliberate move to allow them come up with a new album that would address the needs of people holistically.
The 24 member choir was established in the late 1980’s by the late Ben Mzumara who died a few weeks ago. It strongly follows the guidelines of the Holy Spirit and aims at producing the best and has three albums to its credit.
Other artists who also performed live backed by the skillful and talented Mibawa Band were Kamuzu Barracks gospel singers, who dished out Dzandiolotseni track; a hit which is enjoying massive air play in different radio stations and also happens to be the title track of their new album.
Thocco ‘Anaphiri’ Katimba with his female like voice also sang the once famous Ndilibe nanu mau track and later finished with Anaphiri.
The music festival was part of the prayers organised to celebrate the life of the father and founder of this nation, the late Ngwazi Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda who was born on the 14th May 1898 and died in 1997 after a 31 year rule.
