The Daughters Band recruits new members

Mathews Mfune

The all-female band, The Daughters from Music Crossroads Malawi in Lilongwe has recruited close to 10 members to beef up the group following the moving out of some of its members.

Music Crossroads Malawi Director Mathews Mfune confirmed Thursday that the band has new members.

Mfune said the band has recruited the members following auditions they conducted recently.


“You may recall that we did say that we will be holding auditions to recruit new members and this is because some members had apply for recruitment at the army band and some have been picked,” he said.

Some of those who have successfully been recruited at the army band include lead guitarist Prosperia Ng’oma and the group’s former keyboardist Grace Gama.

“We also have Thokozani Tiwana who was playing guitar, she voluntarily stepped down after getting married and is tied up with her own work somewhere, we also had Thokozani Mdoko who is also not with the band,” Mfune said.


He said the absence of the three created a gap hence the recruitment.

“We only had Madalo and Phalyce as active members. Chifundo since January has also not be with us because her contract was not renewed with Music Crossroads and so she picked up other work and so it is difficult for her to make it,” Mfune said.

He said, of the 10 new recruits, at least three were already former members and have just come back having been with another all-female band Krazy Colours.

“We have Christina Msuseni and Deborah and Caroline Fachi. They went through all processes and auditions. The others were students in the academy. We have for instance, Chisomo Chimoto, Lisa Banda and another girl who plays the violin but she studied in South Africa,” Mfune said.
