Ethno Malawi sends 2 to Ethno Mozambique

Ethno Malawi set for next month


Two artists – Vanessa Lita and Don Chisenga leaves the country today for Mozambique to participate at the Ethno Mozambique.

The two will participate in different activities at the Ethno Mozambique and are expected back on April 22 2023.

Lita said yesterday she was looking forward to learn and at the same time share more about Malawi at Ethno Mozambique.


“I am excited and ready for Ethno Mozambique,” she said.

The two are participating at Ethno Mozambique courtesy of Music Crossroads Malawi through Ethno Malawi to be part of the global movement.

Music Crossroads Malawi Director Mathews Mfune said the participation of Lita and Chisenga at Ethno Mozambique was being supported by Ethno World, a programme of Jeunesses Musicale International (JMI) which Music Crossroads is a proud member.


“This is not the first time we have sent representatives to other Ethnos, we have had representatives participating at Ethno Croatia, Ethno Sweden and now Ethno Mozambique. This year, we will also send representatives to Ethno Zimbabwe, Ethno Uganda and possibly another Ethno outside Africa,” Mfune said.

Meanwhile, Mfune has said that the Ethno Malawi Music Camp will be held at Chingalire Cultural Centre at Nsaru in Lilongwe from May 21 to May 29 2023.

Chingalire Cultural Centre is a hub driven by veteran musician Ben Mankhamba, who is also Village Head Chingalire.

“International participants to this year’s Ethno include two from Uganda, two from Zimbabwe, four from Mozambique, two from Brazil and four from Norway. The rest will be Malawians to make a total of 25 participants,” he said.

Mfune said Ethno Malawi Music Camp has played a crucial role in promoting and preserving culture and that through the platform, artists also get to appreciate traditional instruments which are slowly phasing out.

In another development, the Pakhonde Festival will also be held at Chingalire Cultural Centre from May 26 to May 28 2023 with some of the Ethno Malawi Music camp participants set to perform at the festival.

“Everything is in black and white and we have been holding meetings to make final touches and this year just like last year promises to be bigger and better,” Mfune said.

He said some of the artists that are billed to perform at this year’s festival include Skeffa Chimoto, Lulu, Ndingo Brothers, Katelele Ching’oma, Nyago, Daughters Band, Ethno Malawi crew, Maggie Kadrum, Mbanaye, Kangolwa Band and Mankhamba.
