About this Event

Mairi Campbell and Davie Luhanga grew up on different continents, but each interpreted and analysed their lived experiences, histories and cultures through music and song. Both have experimented with a range of styles and sounds and both are award winning musicians. As they share a stage for the first time, this evening provides a unique insight into the resonances of their reflections and musical journeys.

Mairi Campbell is a pioneering musician receiving critical attention for her remarkable singing, powerful concerts and unique solo music theatre productions that push the boundaries of Scottish traditional music. Her music has a rooted quality, encompassing wide-ranging interests from Scottish dance music to soundings and improvisations.

Davie Luhanga, aka Street Rat, is an award winning Malawian musician now living in Edinburgh. His music also spans genres, including reggae, funk and jazz. He sings in several Malawian languages, which include Chichewa, Tumbuka, Kyangonde from Karonga and Tonga from Nkhata-Bay. He is a former, founder and lead Singer of the award winning North Malawian based band, Body Mind and Soul and now plays afro funk with Scottish musicians in a new band, Tilitose.

The £15 ticket price includes a plate of hot home made food. All profits will help grassroots Scottish Malawian charity, STEKAskills build opportunities for people to earn their way to brighter futures for marginalised young Malawians in a country where less than 1% can go to college or university.
