ANWAR ALI & DAVE OWEN - MALIAKA
Anwar Ali moved to the UK as a refugee, originally hailing from the Bajuni Islands; a tropical paradise off the coast of East Africa.
Dave Owen is a guitarist from Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, who’s been knocking around Liverpool for years.
So what are the chances that Anwar and Dave would start playing music together?
Somewhat fortuitously, the pair met in Liverpool’s Zanzibar Club, simultaneously captivated by the others' distinct and contrasting sound. Anwar and Dave resolved to meet and explore the possibilities and avenues that were presented by their ingenuities, and the result is the MCHANGA MWEUPE EP.
