The Very Best, the ebullient Afro-beat duo of Malawi singer Esau Mawmwaya and Swedish DJ Johan Karlberg play Johnny Brenda's on Sunday.

The band first made their mark with 2010's "Warm Heart Of Africa," featuring Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend. In his review in the Inquirer, Steve Klinge called the band's new album, MTMMK, which features, Baaba Maal, K'Naan and Amadou & Mariam, among others, "effervescent." 

The video for "Yoshua Alikuti," a play on Lil Wayne's "A Milli" clip, is below. Show details here.
