About "Ndalakwanji"
Madalitso Band is back !! It's exciting to have a pure Madalitso Song, with the Malawian groove we have come to know and love them by.

Ndalakwanji means 'What have I done wrongly?'

“There are challenges everywhere, prices have gone up, there is disease - what have I done wrongly? We are free people, but some people want it all - how can that be good - surely we are all one. Tsoko Ilo - it seems there is a bad omen. What have I done wrongly?”
