Peter Mawanga & The Amaravi Movement Part 1

Nov 21, 2017

Peter Mawanga has come to be known as the "Voice of the Voiceless."  A champion for Malawi's underprivileged youth, Mawanga has composed several socially conscious songs in a genre that predominantly melds three of Malawi's regional cultures.  Together since 2007, Peter Mawanga and The Amaravi Movement bring together Malawian instrumentation, jazz guitar, marimba rhythms and singing in Chichewa to create traditional melodies and rhythms that Mawanga calls Afro-vibes.

This episode of No Cover, No Minimum Radio captures the first half of Peter Mawanga and The Amaravi Movement's concert at the Matthews Opera House in Spearfish on April 20, 2017.
