Chichiri Prison Cultural Troupe will again perform at HS Winehouse in Blantyre tonight.
According to one of the organisers of the show Nkhwachi Mhango, Chichiri Prison Cultural Troupe impressed during their previous outing at the venue hence hosting them again by public demand.
“Chichiri Prison Cultural Troupe impressed during their first performance and so, by public demand, we decided to bring them again. This is an opportunity for people who missed them last time to sample their performance,” Mhango said.
He said HS Winehouse will continue to hold different activities as part of promoting arts and culture in the country.
With artists struggling to raise money to hold performances, HS Winehouse has opened its doors to artists where they can be performing for free.
Recently, proprietor of the venue Wilkins Mijiga also said they would be doing more as far as entertaining their clients was concerned.
Sergeant Mike Mpopo said last week after the group performed at Trade Fair Grounds in Blantyre that the corporate world should utilise them.
“All we want is to help promote our culture through traditional dances. We are happy that places like HS Winehouse are coming in. We have been working with National Initiative for Civic Education which has been using us in their different programmes in spreading messages,” Mpopo said.
He said apart from traditional dances, the group, which is made up of inmates, also uses drama to spread different messages.
