The Very Best's Concert History

Esau Mwamwaya was born in Mzuzu, Malawi in southeast Africa. He grew up in the capital, Lilongwe, where he played drums in various bands such as Masaka Band. He was a good friend of the legendary Evison Matafale and they played together for several years before Matafale was killed in Malawi police custody in 2003.
