Yvonne Mwale was born in Zambia and grew up mainly in the Eastern Province in the territory of Nsenga tribe.
When she lost both parents, aged only 12, she lived some time on the streets and ended up in the capital city Lusaka. There, her musical talent was discovered. From her earnings as a singer of a popular band she rented her first house and was finally honoured at the national Music Awards as the “Best Upcoming Female Artist”. In 2010 she toured eight European countries and later was awarded at the Jahazi Jazz Festival (Zanzibar). Meanwhile, she is active internationally.
With her songs Yvonne Mwale wants to deliver a positive message. While on the previous albums Yvonne was often singing about experiences from her past, she now gives a positive look to the future, tells about a new period in her life or remembers beautiful experiences in her childhood that left a impression on her. Like in the song "Spiritual Heart", which she dedicated to her grandmother. In her song she sings about the wisdom and life experience that old people can pass on to the younger generation. The track "Kuwingamo" however focuses on the many people that have to leave their homes because of conflicts and encourages the audience to live together peacefully. Soundwise, “Msimibi Wakuda” got closer to Yvonne’s African roots–but always with the desire to enrich the traditional music of Zambia with influences from other kinds of improvised music.
