Nkhotakota Music Festival will hold its second Facebook live stream show featuring Dan Kalima Friday.
The first show featured Faith Mussa.
The festival was expected to hold its sixth edition on April 18 but it was postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic.
Festival Manager Emilie Larsen, said Wednesday the festival has gone online to share Malawian and international music with the community both in and outside Nkhotakota District.
“We welcome people to join Nkhotakota Music Festival online. With a variety of Malawian and international artists stepping up at our platform, we hope to keep the spirit up and share some good vibes. We would like people to check out Nkhotakota Music Festival Facebook page for updates,” Larsen said.
She said they were on a mission to have fun as well as supporting Malawian artists.
“We are going through a challenging time due to Covid-19 pandemic but we thought of giving people some fun through online shows,” Larsen said.
The festival manager recently also indicated that they would be holding the festival later on this year once the situation normalises.
Kalima said he was ready for the live stream show.
“Yes I am doing a live stream for them. So now they are trying to fundraise for the next festival and the artists that are taking part in the live streams,” Kalima said.
He said he has got his songs ready and that he was confident that the performance would be massive.
“This is my second live stream. The first I did covers but this time it is only my songs and let’s see how it goes,” Kalima said.
Meanwhile, the musician has said he was working on a new reggae project and that he plans to drop a single soon.
“The song is called ‘Jah Save’, its international reggae music,” he said.
