Code labels his music ‘gule’


Musician Code Sangala, who has just returned from United States of America (USA), has described his music as ‘gule’ saying he draws its inspiration from traditional dances.

The former Big Brother Africa (BBA) representative last Thursday performed at Sounds of Malawi Acoustic Session at Jacaranda Cultural Centre (JCC) in Blantyre.

He said with the creative industry affected greatly with Covid the past two years, he took time out to work on a new album set for release sometime next year.


“I dig deep into traditional music and I make sure I incorporate sound that is authentic. I listen a lot to such music of the past from acts such as Love Aquarius, Fumbi Jazz Band, Allan Namoko, Michael Yekha and Daniel Kachamba and so, this is why I am revisiting some of these songs,” Code said.

Apart from performing his songs and that of the forgotten Kapirintiya such as ‘Kwathu Ku Ndirande’, Code reawakened memories of the past by offering songs done by other artists of yesteryears.

He said now that he was back from USA, he was trying to arrange more gigs with another one tomorrow at Mayoka Village in Nkhata Bay.


The creator of ‘Mukunama’ which he performed said his breathing life to old songs was all about promotion and preservation of culture.

Sounds of Malawi Acoustic Session will today host ethno-musician Waliko Makhala, who also happens to be the host of the show that has so far, given a platform to several artists both new and veterans.
