Timve Magazine

This is a great site on Malawi's music scene. It is thriving. And there are a lot of songs free for download. Browse the artists section and find someone you like. I have been.
Malawi has not been immune to the current popularity in many African countries for American-style hip-hop derivatives. Much of it not to my liking but there are a several artists, who I will be highlighting, that I think do a great job of finding their own voice by mixing African and international musical influences into something new and interesting. Esau Mwamwaya's music is a great example of this.
