Malawi Mouse Boys

Malawi Mouse Boys

Malawi Mouse Boys, so-called because of the mouse kebabs they sell to passing travellers on Malawi’s roads in their day jobs, are eight young Malawians playing songs reminiscent of American and South African township gospel. Produced by Ian Brennan (who was at the production helm of Tassili by Tinariwen), their album He is #1 is the first recording in Chichewa ever to receive an international release. Satisfyingly lo-fi and simple, He is #1‘s rough-and-ready approach gives it an effortless, heartfelt charm and leaves room for those incredible vocals.
