Gospel sounds close Sand Fest
Gospel music was the toast of the day on the last day of the Sand Music Festival held at Kabumba Hotel in Salima District.
Blantyre-based artist Lonje was the first to hit the stage as he offered reggae gospel vibes.
With the afternoon experiencing hot weather, a few came close to the stage to listen to Lonje’s songs.
This was Lonje’s debut act at the festival but he showed his best forcing some people to ask him to do some of his pieces.
While many of the up-and-coming artists struggle to put together live acts and prefer using CDs, it was a different story with Lonje, who delivered with the band.
There was also a performance from Steve Spesho, who used a CD and so too was Miracle Chinga Moffat, who attracted interest from the audience.
Despite using a CD, Miracle excited the audience with her performance as she performed most of her late mother’s songs.
The audience also had a chance to sample a performance from legendary, Paul Banda, who was backed by Alleluya Band. Coss Chiwalo was also one of the artists who performed.
Wendy Harawa was also part of the Sunday performances as she performed songs from her debut gospel album which she launched mid this year in Lilongwe titled Mundisunge Ndinu.
“I am happy to perform once again at the Sand Music Festival to minister the word of God through music,” Wendy said.
