Wherever there is creative there's art and Malawi is home to some of the most talented people in the world. Malawian history in music dates back to the WWII. Malawi music has historically been influenced through its triple cultural heritage (British, African, American). Malawians have long been travellers and migrant workers, and as a result, their music has spread across the African continent and blended with other music forms. As mentioned above; One of the prime historical causes of the Malawian musical melting pot was World War II, when soldiers both brought music to distant lands and also brought them back. By the end of the war, guitar and banjo duos were the most popular type of dance bands. Both instruments were imported. Malawians working in the mines in South Africa and Mozambique also led to fusion and blending in music styles, giving rise to music styles like Kwela. Now Malawi is home to different genres of music and artists. Browse the letter bar below to find one that suits you for whatever mood you are in.
