È la canzone africana del momento: sta dilagando in web-radio, canali Youtube, pagine social. “Linny Hoo” è cantata da due musicisti del Malawi, il leggendario Giddes Chalamanda, 91 anni, conosciuto con il nome d’arte di Agide, voce vibrante e calda come il suo Paese, e Patience Namadingo, 32 anni, compositore e cantante gospel che vanta un vasto seguito tra i giovani. Un’insolita coppia capace di conquistare il pubblico mondiale, regalando emozioni con un brano popolare rielaborato nel 2020 con sonorità reggae e interpretato con grande padronanza e affiatamento.
