“The Very Best” is the not so modest name for the duo of Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and Swedish-born producer Johan Hugo. The pair first met in a London secondhand shop in 2007, made a mix tape – and quickly started turning heads on both sides of the Atlantic.
Their brand new album, just out this summer, is called MTMTMK. Download the song “Yoshua Alikuti."
The Very Best performs at The Gramercy Theatre Monday night.
