Malawi’s own acappella group Joyful Souls will open for Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s first ever show in Malawi.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo, one of the best acappella groups from South Africa, is finally making its way to Malawi for the first time for an exclusive show on August 29th, at the Bingu International Conference Center (BICC) Auditorium.
The Joyful Souls is a Blantyre-based all-male Gospel Acappella Assemble formed in 1995 on the premise of spreading the gospel through music.
From its founding, Joyful Souls have consistently released timeless classics starting with the debut album Tidzauluka, their sophomore album Adzaweruza released in 2008 which featured what has seemingly been many people’s favorite songs titled– The God of Second Chance. Their 3rd album Abweranso was released in 2012 and in 2013, the group earned a nomination for the Best Contemporary Acappella Recorded Album in the CARA Awards for their work on the 3rd album.
Joyful Souls has had the rarest opportunities of sharing the stage with various international singing groups including one of the Africa’s Accapella Powerhouses – The Shower Power (from Zimbabwe) and Durant, which is one of the singing groups signed under the US-based Acappella Company.
The historic Ladysmith Black Mambazo show will start at 8PM and is courtesy of Malawi’s event production company Qoncept Creative.
The renowned South African a cappella group, which is currently on tour in China, weeks after touring the United Kingdom, confirmed their Malawi trip via Twitter this week.“Yes Africa, we are headed to Malawi on August 29,” tweeted the multi- award winning a cappella group to their followers.
