When I first listened to Blk Sonshine at Satta Art Gallery over a decade ago, I knew in my soul that I had been in the presence of angels. I cried. From the first melodic note, my heart opened and a heavenly essence came upon me.
That was about ten years ago. Since then, Blk Sonshine (Masauko Chipembere and Neo Muyanga), have released another album while maintaining a level of consistent excellence with a uniquely original sound. Masauko, who was born in the United States to politically exiled Malawian parents, presently resides in Brooklyn, New York. I was fortunate to capture a few moments with him to learn more about his life and passion for music exclusively for Afro-Futures Magazine. – Tantra Zawadi
