Product Description

The book skilfully underlies the place of Likoma Island in the history of Malawi and partly of Africa. Likoma Island is in Lake Malawi. The Bantu migrations across Africa as well as wars of Shaka the Zulu in South Africa are shown to have affected settlement on that island. The book also ably establishes the position of the islands in the slave trade, the two World Wars including independence struggles in that part of Africa. Cultural history is also ably articulated which includes songs and their music in tonic solfa. The History of Likoma Island is the first book of its kind ever written.
