Madalitso Band is formed of Yobu Maligw and Yosefe Kalekeni, and is the culmination of 20 years of friendship between the pair.
To craft Musakayike’s uplifting Malawian folk sound the duo used a homemade one-string slide bass, a cowskin foot drum, and a 4 string guitar.
It follows the label’s release of Bern-based musician Leoni Leoni’s self-titled album, in June.
