“Paradise Over Peace” – NuJazz Artist Mwalim Releases Stunning Single

“If given a choice between paradise and peace, I chose paradise

That’s why I’m with you, paradise over peace, paradise over peace”

We all know that great feeling of discovering new music – your body begins to move, your lips hum, it’s as if your very heart is singing. And we think this next artist intended just that when he penned his latest hit single, “Paradise Over Peace”.

Mwlim is a NuJazz recording artist known internationally for his unique, funky vibes, and soulful approach to music. Thanks to his commendable talent, but also to his entrepreneurial prowess, Mwalim has stood out time and again as one of the most flavorful and appealing NuJazz musicians of this day and age.

Thankfully, we were able to sit down with him for a little while and see what he’s got in store for his audience, as well as what he thinks of his unexpected success.

It might surprise you to learn that Mwalim comes from a long line of musicians. His grandfather first worked as an arranger, producer, as well as a recording artist in his own right, for Decca Records and Southern Records in the 20s and 30s. His presence in Mwalim’s life inspired the young boy to try his hand at music, on his mother’s old piano, and it turned out talent did, indeed, run in the family. The gifted young man picked up the viola at the tender age of 10, then followed that up with the piano, which he began learning properly at the age of 14. 

But for Mwalim, it was always clear that his future was in music, a passion he began pursuing relentlessly from a very young age, and that, soon enough, turned into a realistic career path. 

His latest release, “Paradise Over Peace”, carries a beautiful, catchy rhythm that’s uplifting and exciting at the same time, but also carries with it a social message. 

“I always hear people advise women in relationships to be a man’s peace,” Mwalim explained, when asked about the meaning behind his latest song. “Sometimes that means ignoring what’s going on with her, which is not healthy in a number of ways. From descriptions, paradise is wonderful but not necessarily peaceful and the same can be said for a relationship: ultimately, does this person make you happy? I want a partner, not a sleep aid.”

The song is filled with soul, and breathes a vibe of confidence, but also inner peace. It’s the sort of tune that inspires listeners not only to have a good time, but also to look for more, and strive to be better in their personal lives. As such, it’s the best possible type of song, and it’s part of Mwalim’s upcoming EP, “Polymath’s Grotto”.

When he’s not performing music, Mwalim is a scholar of Black American History, and so, we can no doubt expect the other tunes on his album to be filled with just as much meaning as “Paradise over Peace”.
