Peter Mawanga (Traditional Music from Malawi) by Cameron DeWhitt

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! I have a really special friend this week: Peter Mawanga! Peter is a long-time collaborator with former Get Up in the Cool guest Andrew Finn Magill, and when they were on their way through Philly, Finn recommended I get Peter in front of a mic. I was really nervous about it, because Peter is from Malawi, and African rhythms, in general, are way outside my comfort zone. I profoundly don’t understand them. But Peter was lovely and patient and disarming, and he spoon fed me all the polyrhythms.

Tunes we’ll play:
Samala (Original Malawian Song)
Chigule (Original Gule Wamkulu Dance)
Nanga Iwe (What About You) (Traditional Malawian Hymn)
Lost Indian (Featuring Peter on Sansi) 
Seneca Square Dance (Featuring Peter on Talking Drum)
Ona (Traditional Malawian Dance)

Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends! This week’s friend is Mark Simos, fiddler and professor at Berklee College of Music. I visited him in his home back in February when I took my Boston trip. I didn’t know Mark at all prior to our session, but both Mark Kilianski and Adam Hurt recommended him, so my expectations were high. And I wasn’t disappointed! Mark’s a fantastic fiddler and he has a lot of ideas about what music is and why it’s important; traditional music especially. So, basically the perfect Get Up in the Cool guest. It was nice to not feel like I was being self-indulgent when I wanted to wax philosophical about fiddle tunes, he was right there with me. But, don’t get the wrong idea, this is by no means an overly talky episode. Mark curated a great jam of great versions of great tunes, with an emphasis on effective, intentional simplicity. I’m really excited for you to hear it!

Stick around after the jam and I’ll tell you where to hear more of Mark’s music and possibly study with him. Then, for those of you who are interested, I’ll tell you how to support Get Up in the Cool and feel super good about yourself and also get exclusive bonus content. But first, here’s my interview and jam with Mark Simos. Enjoy!
