Gasper Nali

Wednesday 25th October

Gasper Nali is a roots one-man-band from the small town of Nkhata Bay on the shores of Lake Malawi. He plays a one-string home-made 3-metre long Babatoni bass guitar with a stick and an empty beerbottle, and together with a cow skin kick drum and catchy melodies, he creates the most amazing and danceable original Afro Beats possible!

 

Gasper’s unique style of Kwelamusic has received an extraordinary amount of online attention after avideo of him playing by the lake shore went viral withover 20 million views. He has been featured by CNN and in the documentary ‘Deep Roots Malawi’, jammed with Joss Stone, appeared on Wired for Sound–Malawi, remixed by Aroop Roy for Sol Power Sounds and been played by Iggy Pop on BBC Radio 6Music.

His debut album, Abale Ndikuwuzeni, roughly translates to ‘People, I want to tell you’. Gasper’s songs, all sung in the Malawi national language of Chichewa, talk about life and strife in the country, often including social issues such as the rich and the poor, child marriages and more. Following successful European and UK tours in 2018 and 2019, Gasper has been writing new music and playing locally around Nkhata Bay the way he always has – but now he is ready to re-conquer the world!
