Those who joined were not disappointed: for two and a half hours Yvonne Mwale rocked the place and kept the crowd dancing all night long, cheered by an excited audience.

Many of them queued up the get their copy signed by the artist.   When asked about how she feels about her new album Yvonne had to say: "Working in such a studio with only professional musicians was a new experience for me. But it helped me to extend my limits further. It's great after all that work to see the album finally out and selling. Now, after performing my first major concert here in Germany after the 2010 tour I'm excited to see all the people here. It's good to see that even in Europe the audience loves our Africa music and I will give my best to reach a wider audience with it."   The album was previously recorded in the Art Of June Studios, one of the major german recording studios that allows to record full bands live. The 14 tracks of the album feature besides the Zambian guitar legen 'Sir Jones' also the Tanzanian percussionist Twaba, the danish saxophonist Bobby Ricketts as well as musicians from Germany that usually perform with German superstars like Xavier Naidoo and Glashaus. To get the final polish, the album was after mixing sent to Switzerland for mastering.   With her latest album Yvonne Mwale is further establishing her position in the global World Music scene.
