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.
