In Malawi, Street Rat is a well known and respected artist, who’s made his name as front man and band leader of bands like ‘Souls of the Ghetto’ and ‘Body Mind & Soul’. A veteran to the Malawi scene, in Europe he’s still a newcomer who will have to prove his worth and talent once again.
Street Rat, a.k.a. Davie Luhanga, is an energetic live artist, who has performed a number of times at major music festivals such as the ‘Lake of Stars’ festival, and who made a European tour in 2008. Although his music spans many genres and styles from heavy reggae to what he calls ‘Voodjaz’ – traditional Malawian rhythms with a jazzy feel – his latest release ‘Born in the Ghetto’ is a dedicated Reggae record.
Born in the city of Mzuzu, in northern Malawi, Davie recently moved to Edinburgh, UK, with his British wife & daughter, and is starting to reinvent his career on another continent. He’s putting a band together and is beginning to tap into the networks of musicians and industry in this new place.
