Tony Bird is a folk rock singer-songwriter who was born and grew up in Nyasaland (now Malawi) in Southern Africa. He is known for his Dylanesque vocals and for his songs which describe life in colonial Nyasaland from a progressive anti-colonial point of view. He made his first solo performances at the Space Theatre in Cape Town where his unique African style was reviewed favorably by press and promoters. He recorded two albums in the 70s. His comeback CD Sorry Africa, released in 1990 on Rounder Records in the USA and Mountain Records in Europe and Africa, included the hit song "Mango Time", which describes the happiness of the mangoes being ripe, once a year. He toured with Ladysmith Black Mambazo in the 1980s, who recorded his song "Go Willie Go". He now lives in the New York US where he continues to perform [2].
