SWP013

Southern and Central Malawi

Nyasaland 1950-'58, recordings by Hugh Tracey

A variety of musics by the Mang'anja, Yao and Cewa peoples, found in the 1950's in the southern half of Malawi – the beautiful bangwe zither, the magnificent tuned drum likhuba ensembles, brilliant xylophone playing, a small big band of malipenga kazoos. Such a richness of good music, creativity and identity – and so well recorded. Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Twinned with our other Malawi album SWP 014. Total time: 62" 26". 20 page booklet.

Repertoire 2000 (F)"Voici deux CDs consacrés au Malawi, petit pays fort peu présent dans la discographie africaine. Cinq peuples sont à l’honneur, l’un à l’autre, une diversité de styles et une quantité de surprises de qualité."  "Here are two cds dedicated to Malawi, a country hardly represented in African discograghy. Five peoples have the honour, one after the other, with a diversity of styles and full of quality surprises."
