Audio: Massive Malawi Tunes From Sonye

Our friend Johan, of The Very Best fame, hipped us to two cuts from Blantyre's Sonyezo Houson Kandoje bka Sonye. The guitar-laden "Tabwela" was a massive hit in Malawi early last year, while "Mafilu" is a newer synth-heavy cut featuring fellow countrymen Tay Grin and Nepman. Stream and download both scorchers below and look out for some big collabos and an LP from Sonye coming soon!
