Body, Mind & Soul

Body, Mind & Soul

Body Mind & Soul are a six piece band from Mzuzu, Northern Malawi, led by Davie ‘Street Rat’ Luhanga.

The band started out playing reggae music as Souls of the Ghetto. In 2005 the band felt a stronger connection pulling them towards their Malawian roots. They reflected on the importance of sharing their ancient culture in a modern time and after much thought and experimentation created a new musical concept that they are calling ‘voodjaz’. It is a subtle mix of traditional rhythms with a jazzy feel; creating a bridge between past and present Malawian cultures.

Their first international recognition came in May 2007, when they won the Music Crossroads Southern Africa InterRegional Festival in Harare.

  4. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
    that, how you presented it. Too cool!
