The least expected things in Malawi urban music industry occurred on Fool’s Day (April 1st) as Theo Thomson – who is popularly known for his western style of music – surprised Malawians by releasing a song that has a traditional rhythm.
In the song titled “Maybe Tomorrow” the mesmerizing Malawian guitar rhythms by maestro Faith Mussa brought in some Manganje element to the instrumental as Theo Thomson complemented it with his melodious voice, creating one amazing song.
In an interview with Malawi24, Thomson explained that he has always loved African contemporary guitar playing styles hence fusing his pop style with a Malawian rhythm.
“I’ve always loved African contemporary guitar riffs and it was a case of making it with my sound and it worked.
“Every studio session is a great experience. You’re sat in the studio just listening to different sounds and the moment something catches you, the song gets created out of nothing. It’s a magical moment,” explained Theo who is considered one of most talented singers and performers in Malawi.
“Maybe Tomorrow” is one of Theo’s singles on his new project titled “White Elephant”.
Since its release, the new single has been enjoying massive airplay on local radio stations.
