They are committed people drawn from different hamlets, business and workplaces.
They have interests elsewhere other than music.
But, somehow, members of the all-male group, Chronicles, found ways to sneak their interest in music into their daily commitments.
The product, Ndikhulupilira [I believe] album, will be ready for sampling as Comesa Hall in Blantyre Sunday afternoon, when group members regroup and show the world what, on their day, they can offer.
Chronicles Chairperson, Joseph Mizere, said Wednesday that they are set to “deliver a memorable performance” as they have been rehearsing “a lot”.
“This will be a different experience altogether. We, as Chronicles, will perform a lot of songs at the launch.
“In addition to our performances, we will have several acts in-between and we need people to come in droves because they will have the opportunity to listen to the word of God through sweet harmonies,” Mizere said.
By acts in-between, he could be referring to supporting acts such as Kamwana Family from Lilongwe, Davie Chiwaya, Atumwi Ake, Advent Hope and Press On— all of whom are proven performers on any day.
Chronicles, which was established in 2010 in Blantyre’s Manja Township, has 25 active members. They came from various groups to form Chronicles.
The bi-lingual album — Chichewa and English— has 11 trucks that include the title truck ‘Ndikhulupilira’, ‘Kodi Adalire Iwe?’ and ‘Ndife Mboni Zake’.
