Nyago is a multi-talented Malawian singer with an extraordinary voice that continues to tear down expectations of how a female vocalist should sound like.
Her story of survival permeates through her deep, beautiful, lustrous voice and enchanting melodies. It is that of a strong and determined young woman who has lived through and overcome unspeakable tragedies.
Nyago defines her music as Afro-Spiritual; a fusion drawing from the enchanting rhythms and melodies of the Northern Malawian healing tradition of Vimbuza and elements of jazz, soul and folk. She believes that the spirit of authentic music has healing powers that transcend language and culture; enabling people to embrace and live their truth as well as acknowledging other people’s.
