Erik Paliani, Amanda Black, Faith Mussa shine at Lake of Stars

IMPRESSIVE—South African artist Amanda Black put up a good performance on Saturday

The country’s renowned artists Erik Paliani and Faith Mussa alongside South Africa’s Amanda Black impressed the audience during the second day of the Lake of Stars Festival which ended Sunday at Kachere Kastle in Nkhata Bay. Paliani proved once again that music was in his veins when he offered a powerful performance that left the audience speechless.

Some people were even disappointed after Paliani left the stage to accommodate speeches. Performing with Lyton Chisuse on drums and JJ Munthali on bass, Paliani showed the beauty of music as he took the audience on a journey of his vibes. Mussa with his Mdidi Band also dished out the best during the festival on the main stage warming up for the headliner South Africa’s Moonchild Sanelly.

The artist could not skip his anthem ‘Mdidi’ on lineup of songs. Despite Moonchild Sanelly being the headliner, it was, however, Amanda who sparked and left the audience longing for more. “Thank you Malawi for your support,” Amanda said before bowing out. She impressed with her powerful voice which was strengthened by her dance in some moments. The South African female artist jumped on stage soon after the audience had sampled the performance on Malawi’s Hazel Mak of the ‘Liyaya’ fame.


“She is good but she didn’t give us enough as a headliner. I have enjoyed Amanda Black and the two Malawi acts Erik and Faith,” Elizabeth Johnson, who flew from England said. Apart from the main stage which was facing Lake Malawi, there was also the Garden stage which featured among others, poetry from Vilipanganga Movement from Blantyre. Other acts that starred on Saturday include Praise Umali, The King’s Rifles, DJ Lag from South Africa, Kings of the Night, Annemarie Quinn and Jacoustic, Lazarus Chigwandali, who apart from his short performance also screened his movie.

There were also workshops during the festival on different topics such as art and health as well as conservation music.
