The Coolest Man on Earth!
Mr Ovaton and his nephew Mr Mwansa performing his song “Adviser Is Not a Wizard” on the back porch of the studio in Malawi. We we’re scheduled for a proper recording that day, but fate had it there was an all day power cut – and plan B had to be a battery powered live recording instead. The real recording will commence on our return to Nkhata Bay later this year.
Mr Ovaton is 65 years of age and lives in a remote village in the Nkhata Bay region, playing his own tunes in a traditional style – on an accordion (an unorthodox instrument for this part of the world). Of course Mr Mwansa plays a suitcase!
