After his experience in Hannover, Germany, where he, among others, performed at the Fete de la Musique Festival, musician Patience Namadingo flew to France on Sunday for another show.
Patience, who also had time performing at Pavillon Kulturzentrum with Makatumbe from Hannover, was expected to hold a show at Montmatre Wednesday.
“I am ready for the show and I am excited to be here in France. It’s been a great experience performing in Europe and flying Malawi’s flag,” he said.
Patience has had the first experience of his European shows which started off with Switzerland before moving on to Germany and then France.
“Apart from the performances, I have learned a lot and again have had time to network with artists from other countries. I hope to have more of these tours,” he said.
In Switzerland and Germany, Patience, who has won the hearts of many people since he rebranded, performed with his VIP Band which also backed Princess Chitsulo.
However, the VIP members – Chisomo Ngondo (keyboardist), Chikondi (drummer) and Ephraim Chambota (bassist) returned home on the same day Patience flew to France.
The ‘Msati Mseke’ creator returns home this coming Sunday.
Meanwhile, Chitsulo, who also shared the stage with Patience in Germany at the Fete de la Musique Festival and also two other shows, is back home on Saturday.
Apart from the performances in Germany, Chitsulo has also had interactions with students at IGS School which is in partnership with Jacaranda School for Orphans in Blantyre.
Chitsulo and Patience also performed in Germany as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the twinning of Blantyre and Hannover cities.
