Ethno-Music Camp set for April
Music Crossroads Malawi has said that this year’s Ethno-Music Camp will be held in April through to May at Kayesa Inn in Mchinji District.
The camp will be held at Kayesa Inn for the second time.
Music Crossroads Malawi Director, Mathews Mfune, said Tuesday that preparations were in progress for the Ethno-Music Camp which last year was held at Chingalire in Lilongwe.
“Last year the Ethno- Music Camp was a success once again as it brought together artists from different countries including Norway, Brazil and Mozambique. This year it will be bigger once again and we have had artists knocking on our doors wanting to be part of the camp, we have had artists from countries such as Belgium,” Mfune said.
He said there was progress and that the camp has also created a network which has seen artists engaging in order to promote and preserve the playing of traditional instruments.
“Last year we also had one of the Ethno-Music Camp participants from Malawi being part of the Ethno-Music Croatia. So, there is more we want to do and we would like to call for support so as to make this year’s event a success,” he said.
The Ethno-Music Camp has proved crucial since its establishment as it has brought on board different players in the creative industry aimed at promoting the playing of traditional instruments.
Mfune also said that they will be calling for applications in a bid to get diverse acts, who would offer different performances as regards different instruments.
