A new year and lots of new adventures! While 2017 was a year of content production – this year will be a year of reaching new audiences. And lots of new music! Things to look out for from Spare Dog Records in the new year:
27th February 2018 – Adrian Kwelepeta releases ‘Live or Die Story’
A very impressive debut album by a very talented young artist. You’re guaranteed to have never heard anything like this coming out of Lilongwe before.
May 2018 – Danny Kalima album release
Danny’s second album ‘Ligineti’ is recorded partly in Malawi and partly in the Netherlands. This Chichewa language album spans genres from Malawian Rumba to Modern RnB, and we can’t wait to release it on the world!
Summer 2018 – Gasper Nali Euro/UK tour
This year will finally see Gasper Nali in Europe! Confirmed tour dates will be announced in a short while – and there are some goodies already!
Winter 2018 – Michael Mountain New Album
Michael’s second album is also coming up this year. If you like his previous work, his warm and folky tunes and his perspective on rural Malawian life and struggles, you surely won’t be disappointed by this!
Winter 2018 – Tonga Heritage Debut Album
This year will also bring something never heard of before – the very first international commercial album in the local language of Chitonga. Ever! Tonga Heritage brings rhythms and subject matters of the Tonga people and gives us something both danceable and mystic.
