"His music is simple but joyous, and totally infectious." ☆☆☆☆
Songlines Magazine (#115) 2016
In December 2015, Gasper Nali, Nkhata Bay musician extraordinare, released this debut album on Spare Dog Records. He is an internet phenomena of late, with a five year old video of him playing his song ‘Abale Ndikuwuzeni’, reaching a whopping 18 million views on Facebook & YouTube in just a few months.
Gasper plays a home made instrument called Babatoni. It’s a huge one string bass guitar played with a stick and an empty bottle, and the sound coming out is truly something special. This in combination with Gasper’s great voice and catchy tunes makes for a music experience you almost certainly haven’t had before!
All songs written by Gasper Nali. Recorded & Mixed by Mattias Stålnacke at Moto Wambili Studios, Nkhata Bay, Malawi. Also appearing: Chapasi Black - Djembe & Percussion. Mattias Stålnacke - Guitars & Keyboards.
