Yvonne Mwale

Afro Jazz, Blues, Soul

Yvonne Mwale, the young powerful woman from the land of the Victoria Falls, is currently stirring up the world music scene thoroughly with her new album "Ninkale - Let Me Be". A blessed voice, fascinating personality and great composer: Yvonne Mwale succeeds in conquering the hearts of the audience and moving people.

Growing up in the territory of Nsenga in Zambia, later in Lusaka, she embodies the music of the African diaspora. Instead of pop and electronic music, the rhythms and songs of her home flow into her compositions as a template, which she as a child so often heard. But Yvonne Mwale goes one step further: She skillfully expands her repertoire with elements of Jazz and Blues - and with great success: an impressive array of world and Jazz music awards indeed confirm Yvonne's undeniable talent.

Even her biography reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie: As the stepdaughter of a high-ranking politician, her early youth lacked in nothing. However, after the early death of her parents, she was forced to make her way living on the streets of the capital Lusaka. There she soon discovered music as her calling and only a few years later, she was named Best New Artist at the National Music Awards and was on her first European tour only one year later.

Those who experience Yvonne Mwale in her element on stage can only be swept away by the seemingly endless energy she exudes.

She is supported by a group of outstanding musicians who are able to look back on countless concerts with renowned artists and some of whom have travelled this year from Africa specifically for Yvonne Mwale's European tour.
