About the studios, Rev Claassen says in an email to the editor,

“It is also a recording label as the Lord has laid upon my heart to create a forum to support musicians throughout Africa who love to produce gospel music and are on fire for the things of God.

I have built a recording studio which I hope will be used extensively by musicians, gospel singers, pastors, evangelists throughout Africa. It is my belief that we do not celebrate God enough. I am thankful, very grateful for the life God has given us and there is no better way to thank him other than to give our lives back to him and use the resources, the talents he has given us to celebrate him through Jesus Christ.

She says says the album is titled “Excellent because Our father is excellent, He is Number One.”

Meet Fingani Mphande

Fingani Annie Mphande has so far released two albums; the latest being Chinsinsi which she launched in Stockholm, Sweden. She is part of the worship leadership team at Immanuelskyrkan Church.

 

Fingani says the album is called “Chinsinsi” (mystery) because she believes that there are certain things which people won’t understand and can only be left to God.

 

Her title track is based on a young boy who has speech difficulties. She says she had met this boy selling firewood along the main Lilongwe-Mzuzu road in 2004 and January this year in Malawi. Apart from this inspiration, the rest of the songs are Scripture-based.

The tracks are as follows:

1. Chifundo Chake ndi Chosatha: Masalimo 118 vs 1,4-6,9,17 (His Mercy Endureth Forever: Psalm 118:1, 4-6, 9,17)

2.Chinsinsi (The Mystery)

3. Nditamva Liu La Mulungu: Yesaya 6vs 8 (When I heard the voice of the Lord: Isaiah 6:8)

4. Pemphero Langa: 1 Atesalonika 5 vs 17-22 (My Prayer 1 Thessalonians 5 vs 17-22)

5. Zonse Za Moyo Zitamande Yehova (Let Everything that has Breath Praise the Lord)

6. Bvomera: John 3 vs 16, Mathew 5vs 3,6,7,8,10-12

7. Yenda (Walk)

8. Tiyang’anira 2 Chronicles 20vs12 (We depend)
9. Standing on your word: Hebrews 11 vs 8-11
10. There is a Reason

 

Chinsinsi was recorded at White Dove Studios in Blantyre by Greysham Mokoena and Peter Likhomo. She did all the vocals with one track backed by Greysham and Peter Likhomo (Zonse Za Moyo Zitamande Yehova) and another by Kondwani Munthali (Standing on your word). She says she decided to launch in Sweden in May this year because she did not have adequate time to do so in Malawi as she was supposed to leave for studies in Sweden. Fingani’s album which has ten tracks (most in Chichewa and 2 in English) can be bought on Radio Yako (www.radioyako.com). She can also be contacted via email on finganiannie@yahoo.com.

 

In the first album seven years ago, she sang with her sister Carol. Her singing dates back to when she was 8 years when her father bought a piano for use in the home. Fingani first went into the studio started when her parents encouraged her and her sister Carol to proceed with music and they promised to sponsor them. She first tested her own vocals in 1999 when she recorded a demo with Peter Kunkeyani in Lilongwe. Thereafter Fingani and Carol recorded the first album “Ablaze Kuyaka” with the late Chuma Soko in 2000. The Album was launched in Malawi in 2003 in Malawi at the Blantyre Baptist Church.

 

 

 

Fingani says she sings because she believes music is a ministry to people.

 

I believe one can reach out to people with music and that is my goal to serve God with my talent and voice and minister to those who hear the music. I am sure there are many people, Malawians and non Malawians who do not know me or have never heard my music, my word to them is that they should listen to the music and they will learn more about me and most of all learn and understand what God can do.

 

My music is full of testimonies and life situations that have made me appreciate and learn more about God and it is my prayer that as you will listen to it you will be ministered to as well. Music is the ministry that I believe God has called me to and it is a way of meeting so many people and reaching out to them, encourage them and also just to be with them in those moments they need God most. My prayer is that people should see God in my music and know God through the music. As for me I am just an instrument to deliver the music to the nations. To those who know me may you be blessed with the music and let God minister to you as you listen.

 

 

While she has already written several songs, she says she plans to go into the studio after July 2008.

The blog is open to all who know they are gospel artists. They have the freedom to write their contributions to the posts. This should be information that you think the public should know. There is no pay, it is all for free.

It had been observed that no Malawian gospel artist had their own online presence and this is an attempt to provide that opportunity. So make use of it.

  1. Artist’s History
  2. Album Information
  3. The Church you are part of
  4. Where the music can be found if someone wants to buy
  5. Your plans-for the future
  6. Message to people who don’t know about you and the music
  7. Message to those who have known you before
  8. Why you sing
  9. Pictures of the artists or performances would help make you better known. So include pictures if possible.

On behalf of the Malawi Gospel Music blog crew, I want to thank God for the wonderful privilege of letting us have this blog to the glory of God. Our basis is on God’s Word in Ephesians (Good News):

Eph 5:16 Make good use of every opportunity you have, because these are evil days.
Eph 5:17 Don’t be fools, then, but try to find out what the Lord wants you to do.
Eph 5:18 Do not get drunk with wine, which will only ruin you; instead, be filled with the Spirit.
Eph 5:19 Speak to one another with the words of psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing hymns and psalms to the Lord with praise in your hearts.
Eph 5:20 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, always give thanks for everything to God the Father.
