Anjimile

Friday 11 November
St Matthias Church, Shacklewell Arms, Earth,

Raised in Dallas, Texas to Malawi-born parents and now transplanted to North Carolina, Anjimile knows that study and appreciation are as important as practice when it comes to music. When it comes to composition, Anjimile draws upon everything he’s learned, from the African pop beloved by his parents to their time in youth choir and later influences from Sufjan Stevens and ‘80s music. Lyrically, he delves deeply and thoughtfully into the human condition. From his own perspective, his debut album Giver Taker addressed the conflict between their faith and life as a trans person, as well as the hopeful victory of overcoming addiction. Anjimile is currently working on his next album, which will be released via his new label home of 4AD.
