Ndirande Anglican Voices in 20th anniversary celebration


Ndirande Anglican Voices takes to the stage this Sunday at Robin’s Park in Blantyre to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

It has been a long journey for the gospel group, which is on the verge of releasing its seventh album Usalisinthe Dzina whose theme is derived from the book of Ruth chapter one verses 20-21.

The group’s lead vocalist, Dennis Kalimbe, said Tuesday they were thankful to God for the mission which has seen them ministering the word of God in different corners through music.


With their album Ndasaina, the group made a breakthrough and went on to earn an accolade during Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Entertainers of the Year.

“We are where we are today and we have made it 20 years because of the immense support that people have given us in cash or kind,” Kalimbe said.

He said during the celebration, they will perform two songs from each album.


“We will take people on a journey of where we have come from and how our music has moved from one level to the other. We have decided that part of the proceeds raised from this show will be donated to Ndirande Health Centre,” Kalimbe said.

The singer, who has won the hearts of many people with his voice, said Ndirande Health Centre has served them, hence giving back.

“A lot has been achieved as a group and let me also say that we have invested a lot in education. Most of our members are graduates now and they have attained this through the group,” Kalimbe said.

Kalimbe said the group has its own studio which has not only helped Ndirande Anglican Voices but also other artists.

Apart from Ndasaina, some of the group’s albums include Tiyeni Tonse, Mulungu Amatikondera, Ndasamba M’manja, Zimandikwanira and Namondwe Tonthola.

Going back to the new album Usalisinthe Dzina, Kalimbe said the title track is there to encourage people to trust God in everything.

“Naomi wanted to change her name to Mara because she was bitter. She lost her husband and two children. But it is paramount to trust God in everything, irrespective of whether situations are good or bad,” he said.

Kalimbe said, for now, they are only concentrating on the 20th anniversary and that they will come back with the launch of the seventh album.

Some of the acts set to spice up the anniversary include Great Angels Choir, Thocco Katimba, Favoured Martha and King James Phiri.
