George Kalukusha : "A larger than life personality, George has shades of Tracy Chapman and Jack Johnson and is destined to be the next big thing out of Malawi" - Lonely planet 

Kalukusha (b. 1993 Malawi) treads over multiple genres as a songwriter, but he holds true to the lyricism of folk, the melodic structures of Pop and the groove of Afro music. As a performer he has stood on many notable stages and platforms, to mention a few: BBC Introducing,BBC Scotland, TEDx Lilongwe, Lake of stars festival, Voice of America Radio (USA) and Bloomberg TV (Germany) the Edinburgh Fringe Festivals as well as  opening up for Joss Stone on her recent world tour  “Kalukusha and his guitar have a soothing and mesmerising quality that make me want to keep listening. He sings with an endearing honesty and earnestness that is rare, and refreshing” Donna truly (blogger)
