Do you play live?
Yes, I have played in Zimbabwe, Malawi & South Africa. I love it. Playing before an audience from different continents all under one roof.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Mp3's bring more independence to the artists.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure.
Band History:
I'd say that my interest in music or let me say "the world of music" has always been with me. Growing up in a family of music lovers I was the one who always had an extra keeness in music.

I was born in Zimbabwe, Bulawayo to be exact. At age 5 my parents took me to Malawi, my fathers homeland. For the next 7 years I was to be grounded And established in Malawi's traditional music

My last year in that country was crucial for me. I played my first instruments the Malawian traditional flute and drum as I took part in one of the countries celebrated festivals called Amalipenga.

Being back in Zimbabwe meant settling into a different environment and lifestyle. Though I still apreciated music I was not to be involved as a performer until the late eighties

I was first involved in a band called HotIce, but we never actually played any instruments nor sang. In 1990 I started my music studies and then guitar in 1991. By march 1992 I was playing in church then the big turnaround in 1993 when I joined Redemption Band, a gospel youth band I was the lead guitarist, we recorded one album and then disbanded in 1997. I continued with my music, singing and playing concerts. In may the same year I recorded my first solo album called Baba Wami. I did TV, radio & magazine interviews. In 1999 my music turn around was cemented, that is from a jazz listener to a jazz composer & player

Nevertheless, I've always kept it fused with deep african traditional beats and rhythms. Playing live is always fulfilling for me. I believe in the Cape to Cairo music influence set-up in my work.
