Let me show you my home

This is the maize field where I grow my crops to feed my family. We are outside Viboko village, far up in the hills of the Nkhata Bay Region, Malawi. The music you’re hearing is called Working With my Tools from the Nowhere Else To Go album. You can find it here: michaelmountain.bandcamp.com/

Michael’s wonderful 2015 album ‘Nowhere Else To Go’ is finally back and available online (Spotify, iTunes etc etc) It was down for a while due to changing digital distributor and we also decided to take the opportunity to give it a bit of a re-master. The bulk of the album is recorded live in Nkhata Bay, Malawi, in 2014, and it’s a collection of absolutely beautiful songs of life and strife in rural Malawi. Favourite track: Working With My Tools.
