Lilongwe Malawi Music
Last year, the Malawian music scene experienced a kind of identity crisis. A number of artists have created a new musical identity for the country, often blending traditional Malawian and South African styles with contemporary Western music. As Joe Hartley reports at the Lake of Stars Festival, these new styles and influences have flown under the radar, but there is an incredibly exciting sound coming out of this country at the moment. The first two members of the new group, Samuel Mwanga and Nkumalo, went through the music academy.
One of the institutions that has an annual exchange programme is Music Crossroads Malawi, which offers a musical-cultural exchange programme through a network that offers young people musical opportunities. We recently joined the Music Crosroads Academy to prepare for our exchange programs in Norway. MusicCrossroads is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and offers similar programs for Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
We are passionate about Malawi and Africa as a whole, and we have a strong sense that youth is taking responsibility for Africa's development.
The country is dominated by the Shire River, which flows between the lakes Malombe and Chirwa and extends almost the entire length of Malawi, from north to south. It flows through the city of Blantyre before finally pouring into the larger Zambezi River in Mozambique. Although it is not one of Africa's most popular tourist destinations, it still has many attractions. With its majestic lakes stretching across its eastern border and beautiful beaches, Malawi is a less travelled African country, but still an important tourist destination.
Although it has been named a go-to destination by Lonely Planet, Malawi is one of the lesser-known destinations on the annual guide's list, which includes Brazil, Sweden and Seychelles. Malawi is a landlocked country covering 2.2 million square kilometres, covered by the Great Lakes, the Shire River and the Zambezi River in Mozambique, as well as the Chirwa River.
My favourite is the Malawian rapper Lady Pace, one of the country's most popular and influential artists. Her debut album, "No. 1 is the No 1 '- a raw, redheaded track played on homemade instruments - Published last year to great acclaim.
This critically acclaimed album presents Mawanga's true sound, with a more mature approach to music than his previous albums, such as his debut album "Mawanga."
It was unexpected and joyous that the clarinettist of the Malawi Conservatory came across a world of music through and through. It turned out that a few days after my return to South Africa I had better understood what "Malawi" was listening to, and the festival crew also acted as if I were sharing their own music. I played it for them and compared the results to a number of other local musicians. My subsequent ethnomusicological training has helped to redefine my understanding of music as an experience, indivisible and embodied in its own unique form of expression.
