Lilongwe-based musician Lazarus Chigwandali is the latest act to collaborate with Annemarie Quinn, who is working on an album.
Annemarie, a musician from United Kingdom but is currently based in Malawi has been working with different artists in the country to be part of her album.
The Music against Malaria co-founder, said Thursday she was determined to feature a number of local artists in the country and that she was happy to have finally connected with Lazarus.
Lazarus, who is a person with albinism, has used music within and outside the country using music to tackle issues affecting persons with albinism.
Apart from collaborating in a song that is to be featured in the album, the two acts also had time for a jam session.
“My album is making strides. Lazarus is the latest feature. So, Lazarus recorded his vocals for my track ‘Osadandaula’. We set our studio up in a hotel room and recorded together before having a jam session. It was awesome,” Annemarie said.
She said she first met Lazarus at Lake of Stars Festival in Nkhata Bay last year.
“Lazarus joined me on stage during the festival to perform ‘Osadandaula’ and so from there we decided to record together,” Annemarie said.
She described Lazarus as an amazing artist, who the country has to support.
“His sty le and expressing is so inspirational,” the singer and guitarist said.
Since she came to Malawi, Annemarie has fallen in love with local music and has been working with a number of artists including Code Sangala, who they work together driving Music against Malaria project.
Other artists Annemarie has worked with include Faith Mussa, Agorosso and Jacaranda School for Orphans.
