The Malawian seven-person band formed in 1999. After starting out as a reggae band, they turned to the rich traditional music this landlocked state is known for. Konga Vibes won the prestigious Music Crossroads Southern Africa Festival Award in 2006. A year later they embarked on a groundbreaking tour of Europe. Their vibrant live performances were first seen in Europe in June and July 2007, as they performed in cities like Amsterdam, Brussels and Zagreb.
