Album Notes
Arnold Chiwalala was once a student and ‘son’ of the great Hukwe Zawose at the Bagamoyo College of Arts (Chuo cha Sanaa) in Tanzania; and is nowadays Doctor of Music from Sibelius Academy and a permanent resident of Finland. Chiwalala’s charming duo Pole Pole with Topi Korhonen has toured extensively not only in Finland but also internationally since more than a decade. In the course of the years the duo has grown into a 6 piece Arnold Chiwalala Band representing an international line-up with top professionals. Now is time for it’s first cd.

Chiwalala’s music has no comparison, really. It is born out of Chiwalala’s love and long term study of the Finnish kantele instrument; combining elements of the traditional music of both Finland and Tanzania; evolving into Chiwalala’s very own musical style that he performs through his own compositions.
Chiwalala – zeze – kantele - ’Chizentele’.

Arnold Chiwalala - 10-string kantele, vocals, percussion/ngoma
