Bandawe Station Choir of the Thipula CCAP congregation in Nkhata Bay have said all preparations for the launch of their latest DVD titled Mulumbike on December 2 are complete.
Choir secretary Yolam Nyirenda in an interview said the production of the DVD, which was handled by John Nguluwe of Positive Arts, are through.
“The production of the DVD was completed some months ago. We are now launching it on December 2. The launch will take place at Thipula CCAP Church located at Bandawe in Nkhata Bay. We, therefore, urge all music fanatics to come and grace the launch,” he said.
Nyirenda said the DVD is the third from the choir.
He said the launch will attract several choirs such as Gospel Ambassadors from Lilongwe, Kakoma Church Choir from Embangweni, Mchengautuwa CYF from Mzuzu, Mathabwa Fellowship and many more.
“It will be a family day of music. People should expect a good performance from the choir,” said Nyirenda.
He also said the 25-member choir plans to take the launch to other places after the Nkhata Bay launch.
The audio songs contained in the DVD were all recorded at Roy B Studios in Kawale, Lilongwe by Robert Liwawa.
According to Nyirenda, all the songs have a traditional beat.
“The DVD contains 10 songs. All but two are in Tonga. These are traditional songs,” he said.
A music fan, Happy Kondowe, said having listened to the group on radio, it is time to watch the group live in performance.
“I have listened to the Bandawe Station Choir. Their songs contain mature message, and this time I am going to attend the launch to see how they perform on stage,” said Kondowe.
Some of the songs include Ndimwi Yesu, Calvary, Kankhuskani Chiuta, Mulumbike, Zowala, Petulo, Yona and Ndasankha Kuyenda ndi Yesu. n
