Move alumni off to Mozambique


About 10 Musician Organisers and Volunteer Exchange (Move) alumni left the country over the weekend through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe for Mozambique to attend the Southern Africa Move Alumni assembly.

The group is expected back home this coming Sunday.

The gathering which is the first of its kind coincides with the country’s Independence Day and will see the alumni from Malawi and Mozambique networking and sharing ideas.


Move is a programme implemented by Music Crossroads Malawi, Music Crossroads Mozambique, JM Norway and Sustenidos of Brazil with support from Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation (Norec).

Together with their Mozambican counterparts, the alumni from Malawi will hold a concert at the Malawi Ambassador Residence in Maputo as part of the Independence Day celebrations.

President of Malawi Move Alumni Chisomo Ngondo said, before departure, they were excited with the opportunity to link up with their counterparts.


“We do not take these opportunities for granted. This is our chance to sell Malawi to the rest of the world,” Ngondo, who is a keyboardist, said.

Music Crossroads Malawi Director Mathews Mfune said he was upbeat on Move’s achievements in the country.

“Move project has groomed and continues to train young musicians into professionals in the country,” Mfune said.

Currently, six-young musicians are on a six month exchange initiative between Malawi and Mozambique with the other group expected to leave on August 21 for a 10-month exchange programme in Norway, Brazil and Mozambique.
