Malawi Mouse Boys

Landlocked Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, and when not strumming on their rudimentary guitars made from recycled scrap-metal parts, these young musicians make a living selling the local delicacy—mice on sticks as snacks for passing travellers—hence their name. This is the first time their music has been out of Malawi (in fact the first-ever release in the language of Chichewa outside Malawi) and the purity and earnestness of their voices is both enchanting and moving.
