Beating Heart - Malawi


Ethnomusicologist Hugh Tracey made 35,000 recordings across Africa between the 1920's & 70's, in an epic bid to preserve the music of Africa for future generations. Sixty-five years later, artists are being allowed to access the archives of the International Library of African Music (ILAM) for the first time, with contemporary producers putting a fresh perspective on the never-heard-before sounds to help bring them to a new generation. Beating Heart is a music initiative which seeks to use sounds of the past to address problems of the present - money raised will go directly to help communities where the music was originally recorded. 'Beating Heart - Malawi' will be the first album in a series to be released by Beating Heart, and features Rudimental, Luke Vibert, Machinedrum, Kidnap Kid, Throwing Shade, My Nu Leng, Drew Moyo, Clap! Clap! and many more, who have all given their time for free to create this special album that will kick-start the roll out of a new development model that will provide nutrition and income now and in the future. Malawian musicians Drew Moyo and Sonye are also amongst the artists involved, bringing the sounds of their heritage full circle to help the modern world.
