Karonga-based Lusubilo Band is expected to perform in South Korea again in January next year.
Lusubilo Music Centre Founder, Professor Agnes Kim, said Thursday that she was excited that another chance has come up for the group to showcase its skills in South Korea.
“We are really blessed and privileged that Lusubilo Band will perform in South Korea. It will be the second time for the group to perform there,” Kim said.
She said Lusubilo Band has been invited by the Culture Ministry of South Korea to attend the Art Dream Camp.
“They will attend the Art Dream Camp with other youths from Columbia, Indonesia and Vietnam where there is no winter season,” Kim said.
Lusubilo Band early this year also performed in Germany on a tour that saw them sharing the stage with Andromeda Express and Ulimba from Nsanje as part of promoting traditional instruments.
Meanwhile, Kim has revealed that 11 Korean musicians arrived in the country on Tuesday for the dream music workshop with Lusubilo Band.
“The dream workshop is part of preparation for the Art Dream Camp,” Kim said.
She said the 11 Korean musicians will be with Lusubilo Band for a week.
“Lusubilo Band is now playing good and strong music and I am also happy that we have two musicians – Phillip Mwanjasi and Limbani Munthali—who studied music for four years in South Korea,” Kim said.
She said the two are doing well in terms of drilling the others adding that Ellah Mwanjasi, who is studying voice at Korea National University of Arts, is expected back next year.
