Show Notes

Mungo Ligoya uses the power of art to connect people and inspire conversations that challenge oppressive systems.  

Mungo was born and raised in Malawi, a country known as the warm heart of Africa. He moved to Idaho five years ago to attend The College of Idaho in Caldwell. His roots in the local community and relationships with fellow artists have inspired Mungo to continue building his career here. 

Mungo fuses Afro-Soul and RnB into his music. His paintings reflect a call to action for social justice. 

Last year Mungo founded MUNGOWONA ARTS LLC with a mission to help people connect with their bodies and feel confident in their movements, whether they are beginners or seasoned dancers. He teaches movement workshops all over the valley.
