Nkomba

Nkomba are a contemporary African folk band who play an energetic mixture of Malawian folk songs and African roots music. The band is led by Ron Nkomba who performs on guitar, mandolin and harmonica and sings in English & Chichewa, the national languages of Malawi. As well as interpretations of traditional Malawian folk songs, their compositions draw on experiences and influences from Europe, Asia and Africa which reflect their up-bringing.

Nkomba are an impassioned band whose songs provide insightful social and political storytelling and commentary, from the current devastation of deforestation and the plight of women in Malawi to present day UK politics. They have played numerous gigs in Egypt, Eastern & Southern Africa, Malawi and Europe.
