Intuitive, authentic, and full of ruthless rhythms, the duo from Malawi known as Madalitso made their international debut at Zanzibar’s Sauti za Busara festival in 2017. Since then they have taken Europe by storm, and we are now poised to introduce them to North American audiences. Madalitso will make you clap, dance, smile, and rethink everything you thought you knew about music from the African continent.

Since their debut they have been featured on BBC Africa, and performed at such prestigious festivals as WOMAD UK, and Roskilde in Denmark. First discovered by a local producer in 2009 while they were busking on the streets of Lilongwe, eight years on their debut at Sauti za Busara festival brought them to worldwide attention. Six months later they were on a plane to Europe for a two week tour the first time they had ever traveled by airplane. Their downtoearth nature and raw onstage energy endeared them to European audiences, every year since they have increased the number of weeks they tour in Europe from 2 to 9 weeks.

A second album was released in 2019 by Bongo Joe Records (Geneva) who instantly fell in love with the Madalitso ethos, grounded in “why should we buy our instruments when we can build
our own, and get the sound we want.” Welcome to the world of Madalitso!
