Anderson Chimutu is a first generation Malawian American who resides in the city of South Bend, Indiana. Growing up near Chicago and Detroit, Chimutu was exposed to many legends of the regional music scene. This influenced him to get involved with various instrumental bands and djing. Now he focuses on solo productions, which integrate the use of granular sound processors and drum machines. This new approach, coupled with the desire to represent his African heritage, has given birth to Fumbata Phiri. His first offering as Fumbata Phiri came in the form of 2020's "Decoherence", released on the Hungarian label Exiles. He followed that up with "Equipoise", released on UK label Hard Return, "Actuation" released on Eternal Search in 2021, and now in 2022, "Liminal Space" released on Chicago label, Reserve Matinee run by Michael Stumpf (FAITHFUL) and John Daniel (Forest Management). Chimutu wants to challenge the narrative surrounding African-influenced music, and does so by creating what comes naturally to him. Proposing an extension into the future, while being cognizant of the history that has brought him to this point.
