about

I composed this song for the Sara Do Santos Dance Company to choreograph a contemporary dance piece to be performed at the INSPIRED event - a collaboration between Mayamiko Trust and Slaves of the Extraordinary. The words I am singing are in Chechewa, the language spoken in Malawi.

Mayamiko = Praise
Umi = Energy
Mwai = Success
Panjira = On a Journey

All of life is a journey, the paths we take and the challenges we face shape us in indescribable ways. 'Panjira' takes the audience through a great journey of three beautiful women from childhood into womanhood. Faced with loss, hardship, injustice, poverty and fear. They fight to survive.
The world can try to break us, strip us down, imprison us and starve us. But what they cant take away is our soul, our gifts, our purpose!' These woman have come out standing and wanting to change their current reality. They want to go where there is no path and leave a trail.
