London – Dzaleka
July 12, 2010 by dan
London Dzaleka is a musical journey telling the story of two people in different worlds on the same small planet.
In 2010 Steve carried guitars from London to a refugee camp called Dzaleka in one of the poorest countries in the world, Malawi. he met with Innocent, who owned nothing but time, until he was sponsored to study outside the refugee camp, and his work began. Steve had retired early and had time to help Innocent start a guitar school. Inno had lived for his first 27 years in refugee camps in Congo, Zambia, Tanzania, and Malawi. Through the gift of music and education, Inno escaped the camp to found a charity to help these refugees.
Through the language of music Inno and Steve instantly connected between London and Dzaleka; two places that share a cosmopolitan multi-lingual vibe. But one place is influential while the other is without voice. This CD can allow you to take a journey starting in Dzaleka, where a simple guitar expresses their shared praise to a shared God, and back to London where Innocent came in 2010 and recorded two of his African songs produced and accompanied by the Weeks family behind the band, “Our Dad“.
