THE VERY BEST/MTMTMK: Available July 17th, 2012

2012 release, the follow up to their breakthrough 2009 album Warm Heart of Africa,. Comprised of Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and London-based producer Johan Hugo, the group garnered extensive critical praise for both Warm Heart Of Africa and their string of online mixtapes. MTMTMK was recorded over five weeks in a makeshift studio in Esau’s hometown of Lilongwe, Malawi. ''We had a big step with the second album: we had to evolve,'' Johan notes. ''This time we wrote, produced and recorded together simultaneously-the way it should be done. It was a much more collaborative effort.'' The album features guest spots by Amadou & Mariam, Baaba Maal and K’naan, among others.
