Lately, to live is to float, on.
Chmba is a DJ, Producer and Activist from Malawi. Born to young parents her DJ life started as a toddler passing her dad cassette tapes while he played music on a boombox at his university events. By age 7, she was ripping the tapes apart making her own mixes. At age 12, she started sneaking into a local radio to grab new music. One day she accidentally came across Virtual DJ software and that’s where she started deejaying.
At 22, there were too many twists she wanted to add to songs, so she went ahead and self-taught herself music production. The twist not so common that she’s dedicated to bring more of to the world is afro-electronic soul and future.
BUT also concerned by the 2% percentage of female producers globally, she’s on another mission with her organization ,Tiwale. Tiwale is a women’s center in Malawi supporting girls/women through art, music education and economic opportunities. Chmba started Tiwale at 17 years-old to end the vicious cycle of child marriage in Malawi. Tiwale has since supported over 313 women and girls and is featured in Forbes, Glamour Magazine and more.
