With Yvonne Mwale one of the most interesting musical discoveries of the African continent is currently on tour in Europe. Just in her mid-twenties, this outstanding vocalist has already gained attention in the world music scene around the globe.
At the age of 12 years she lost both her parents and had to live for some time on the streets of Zambia’s capital Lusaka. This experience made her not only strong but left an impact on her life that, now results in touching lyrics and outstanding compositions that are a well balanced fusion of traditional African tunes, Jazz and Blues.
The arrangements do not only become alive from her your exceptional voice, which has often been compared to Erykah Badu, Tracy Chapman, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, but also on the decision to include only original vintage instruments.
