Malawi Mouse Boys: Singing Out Of Poverty

by Letters 4 the Damned

BALAKA, Malawi — The Malawi Mouse Boys are comprised of eight men from Malawi who make a living selling barbecued mice near the local highway. However, when no one is buying they bring out their instruments and sing.

Grammy Award-winning producer Ian Brennan noticed the group two years ago while scouting for talent in Africa. The group is comprised of guitarists, vocalists and rhythm percussion, which is played using pop cans and other available materials.
