      A cover band is what you could call them. Based in Blantyre Malawi, they virtually perform any and every song on the earth, and they do it well. Who would have thought that deep in the heart of Africa, one would hear R.Kelly’s “Gotham City'’ being performed in front of a live audience and arguably sounding better than the original. A night at Mibawa cafe where the band is based typically starts with and hour of smooth african jazz. The 5 man

        a great time. Before the night comes to an end the band hits you with some deep African old school hits which sends the crowd into a frenzy.

Mibawa band is exceptional quality entertainment that will have you in a daze. If you are ever in Blantyre, Malawi be sure to check them out live at Mibawa cafe.
