Biography

Peter Mawanga released his first album, "City Life", in 2003, under the artist name "Peter Pine", containing his controversional hit single "Amakhala ku Blantyre".

He later shed that artist name, and released his next album "Zanga Zo Zama" in 2004 under his last name "Mawanga". This album had a sound truer to African traditional music. In 2007, Peter established his band "The Amaravi Movement", which has had members like Faith Mussa, Alfred Nkhoma, Dryson Mwimba, Mayamiko Chimkoka, Mavuto Milion, Marlyn Chakwera, Joyce Kaliwo and Omex Chimpeni.[1]

In 2018, Peter released the album "Takula" together with Malawian Musicians Faith Mussa, Marlyn Chakwera, Samuel Mkandawire (Sam Mjura) and Norwegian Musician and producer Georg Buljo in a project band called "Takula". The aim of the band was to re-imagine and re-interpret old and forgotten radio recordings from the archives of Malawi Broadcasting Corporation, and was done in collaboration with Norwegian radio journalist Sigbjørn Nedland.

Mawanga has also collaborated with Sally Barker and Vicky Genfan [2], Georg Buljo, Qabaniso Malewezi, Andrew Finn Magill, Lawrence (Lulu) Khwisa among others.
