Transition affected Kapirintiya—Shadre


Singer and guitarist Shadre Sangala has admitted that the transition which the group has had over the past years affected their performances but also forced them to suspend the launch of their new album Heart and Soul.

Kapirintiya was billed to launch Heart and Soul last year but Shadre said they suspended the project during to the transition which he said has not been smooth.

He could not be drawn to comment on what sort of transition the group underwent although this also follows the move of his brother C.O who is now playing solo.


C.O and Shadre have worked together for years and played as frontrunners for the Ndirande based group until later when C.O announced that he was going solo.

He also said that they have been working hard to produce new songs adding that they did not want to be performing old songs during their live shows.

“People have heard enough of our old songs and so we didn’t want to be performing them over and over again this is why we decided to go on a long break just to put our house in order. It’s not that we called it quits as some people have put it but we wanted to improve and come back fresh,” said Shadre.


He said the rough ride which they have had has given them lessons and that now they are ready to move forward.

“To say the truth we have had a rough ride this is why we took this break. But now we can promise Malawians that they are in for a fruitful ride. Having suspended the Heart and Soul album, we are working on singles which will still be in this album,” said Shadre.

He said they will be dropping more singles as part of buiding the hype with the latest being a music video titled ‘Ubwere Angelina.’

“This is the first music video we have produced from this Heart and Soul album. This is a song which is fresh, it’s a love track in which a man is missing his loved one and so this forces him to pick up a pen and paper and then write a letter,” said Shadre, who is Kapirintiya Band leader.

He also revealed that the Heart and Soul album will now be released in September.

“The 11 track album is ready, we have reworked on all the songs. Our only appeal is for people to support us once this album is out. Again we want them to sample the music video which will tell them the direction we are heading to. We are also changing our style,” said Shadre.

Kapirintiya has for the past years entertained Malawians releasing songs such as ‘Kwathu ku Ndirande.’
