Malawian Street Duo on a Global Stage
ABOUT MADALITSO BAND
It's been an extraordinary few years for this dance folk duo, who until 2017, hadn't left their native Malawi. The decade spent roaming the streets as a pair, and perfecting their home-made instruments and vibrant playing style, seems to have paid off - since their first performance on an international stage at Sauti Za Busara in Zanzibar 5 years ago, the rollercoaster ride hasn't stopped!
Currently on their fifth European tour, with shows at Roskilde, WOMAD, Fest Des Suds, and over a hundred other performances across Europe and Africa, 2022 set the stage for their first performances in USA. Also this year there is the new album Musakayike out on June 17 and the making of a documentary in process.
