After successfully launching Abweranso album, gospel acappella group Joyful Souls takes it to Malawiâ€™s capital, Lilongwe, at the Sheaffer Conference Hall on Sunday September 9 2012.Â
The first launch took place at the Robinâ€™s Park in the commercial city, Blantyre, where a capacity crowd witnessed the groupâ€™s grand comeback following a four-year silence.
Abweranso is the outfitâ€™s third album. The previous two are Tidzauluka from 2005 and 2008â€™s Adzaweluza.
â€œThe silence was because the group was revisiting its acappella touch to suit the current trends following advice from SDA church elders and its fans,â€ said the groupâ€™s spokesperson Lloyd Kaisi Phiri.
â€œItâ€™s the first album for the group with all acappella songs. The songs are a selection from popular hymns of various denominations, but they are re-arranged and sung in Joyful Soulsâ€™ way.
â€œThe message in the songs is about Jesus Christ, that is His second coming, and what He is doing in the holy of holies right now,â€ he added.
Currently, Chiweruziro, Abweranso and Pakwitana are enjoying massive airplay on various radio stations in the country.
