‘The Very Best’ – in town for Glastonbury Festival warm ‘down’ show – Presently riding high in the UK Charts with their collaboration on Mumford & Sons’ new LP (and Baaba Maal) – Their 2015 LP on Moshi Moshi has been a huge step forward – their profile is soaring, a bit like their Malawian melodies and driving Hip-hop grooves!
‘It’s a huge step forward’ – Mojo
‘Malawian-Swedish outfit make sublime pop songs that rock any dancefloor. African melody and harmony, funky guitar and euphoric house grooves’ – The Guardian
It’s been a long, strange trip for Johan Hugo and Esau Mwamwaya, the Swedish-Malawian duo behind The Very Best’s exuberant global pop. One which crosses continents as well as musical genres. It’s also a trip, according to Johan, with no end in sight. “We’re constantly evolving,” he says with a laugh. “Not just in the sense that we’re trying to change our sound. But we’re constantly on a new journey which colours the music we make.”
