Katengeza Family Canada


Katengeza Family Canada is a family band based in the lakeside town of Nkhotakota, Malawi. In the 1970s Canadian road workers befriended the local community while building the main road through Nkhotakota. The workers sang and danced with people living in Nkhotakota village hence one of the traditional forms of music from this area was renamed in honor of the village’s Canadian friends. “Canada” music is performed by a group of men who hum and sing together while tapping a nail on the head of a hoe in complex rhythm – creating beautiful and haunting songs.
