Madalitso Band

Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Malawi
The Madalitso Band plays music with authentic, intuitive and ruthless rhythms, incorporating African sound and instrumentation. Since their debut, they have been featured on BBC Africa and performed at festivals such as WOMAD UK and Roskilde in Denmark. They released their second album in 2019 from Bongo Joe Records. Their music is grounded in an ethos of “why should we buy our instruments when we can build our own, and get the sound we want.” 
The Madalitso Band received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) in 2022 and will be using the award to tour around Malawi.
