‘Lake of Stars London, Scotland a success’


Lake of Stars (LoS) Festival founder, Will Jameson, has described LoS London and Scotland as a success, saying they marketed Malawi in several disciplines.

LoS London and Scotland took place on Saturday and Sunday where several acts including Faith Mussa, Zathu Band, Dan Kalima and Zalutso Arts presented their work.

“The weekend was really good and exciting and people were really given a treat. London and Glasgow love Malawi,” Jameson said.


The two events are part of a series of activities that organisers of LoS have lined up this year in celebrating 15th anniversary.

The main festival will be held on September 28 – 30 at a venue to be announced later.

Jameson said the two events promoted Malawi’s food, music, art in general, culture and other products.


“There was so much interest from people on Malawian products so the two events surely succeeded,” he said.

Mussa, who had performances at LoS London and Scotland, also described the two events as a success.

“Prior to my performances, I had time to do an interview with BBC. It was great performing at the two events and I am happy that I managed to showcase Malawian music,” the singer and guitarist said.

He also said Malawians living in London and Scotland patronised the events.

Zaluso Arts, driven by Akulu Lipenga and Mac Ndalama, also starred at the events where they teamed up with some street artists called Woodstreetwalls in London to paint some walls at Hoe Street, Walthamstow.

Supported by British Council, Zaluso Arts also had time to paint some walls in Scotland.
