2022 eventful, says Music Crossroads Malawi


Music Crossroads Malawi has described 2022 as a success despite facing challenges.

Its director Mathews Mfune said, having been affected by Covid in the past two years, they resumed their international cultural exchange programme, known as Musician Organisers and Volunteer Exchange (Move), as well as introduced the Pakhonde Festival.

“It has been an eventful year where we also had our annual Creative Training Campus with a new satellite in Blantyre for the first time using a hybrid approach that included both online and physical classes,” Mfune said.


He further said they started a Music Business School.

“We were so much involved in delivering cultural and artistic performances to Southern Africa Development Community delegates that came to Malawi,” Mfune said.

He said in a drive aimed at expanding their base and growing the creative sector in the country, they introduced different projects including YipMade Vocation Training Programme in fashion and designing as well as welding and fabrication.


“In 2023, we look at consolidating the gains we made in 2022 and strengthen delivery so that more people can benefit from the programmes and contribute more to the arts and culture sector in Malawi,” Mfune said.

He said Music Crossroads Malawi is looking forward to being of service to the government and private sector to take arts to the next level and participate more on the global cultural field.

“We are focusing on sending more Malawian artists to participate in international cultural training opportunities, participation in festivals and other cultural activities,” Mfune said.
