Who's Going to This?
Lineup and Details for Anwar Ali & Dave Owen - Mchanga Mweupe Relaunch
Following the 2017 release of 'Mchanga Mweupe', the EP is being re-released.
Anwar Ali moved to the UK as a refugee, originally hailing from the Bajuni Islands; a tropical paradise off the coast of East Africa.
Dave Owen is a guitarist from Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, who’s been knocking around Liverpool for years.
So what are the chances that Anwar and Dave would start playing music together?
Somewhat fortuitously, the pair met in Liverpool’s Zanzibar Club, simultaneously captivated by the others' distinct and contrasting sound. Anwar and Dave resolved to meet and explore the possibilities and avenues that were presented by their ingenuities.
The sound they produce is a unique blend; steeped in Swahili and East African musical heritage, and underpinned by a British folk sensibility. Dave’s acoustic guitar complements Anwar’s oud, with the artists' shared passion and intensity producing a haunting and emotive sound.
