Wambali Mkandawiri was one of Malawi’s most influential jazz singers and political activists. It was a great loss when he passed away in 2021. Fortunately, we were able to meet him on a visit to Never Ending Food in 2017.
Never Ending Food was honored to host a visit from one of Malawi’s most influential musicians. Wambali Mkandawire and his family came to learn more about Permaculture practices and what they can do to increase the sustainability of their own farm. Wambali has had a long history of music, politics, and community development in Malawi. According to Wikipedia: “Wambali’s music fusion style has been celebrated as a pioneering sound in Malawian Jazz music…Together with his wife, they have started a publishing company, “Kajimete Arts Publishing,” to help promote Malawian talent.” We had a great visit and wish his family all the best in their continued efforts to create a better Malawi!
