Three artists to star for Lilongwe Jazz Festival


Three artists namely – Gresham Mokwena, Desire Manda and TJ will perform at Lilongwe Jazz Festival this weekend.

With several events and festivals cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic, Lilongwe Jazz Festival has been affected by the pandemic but still decided to host the three artists.

One of the members of the organising team of the festival Khonjwa Ngwira, said Thursday all was set for the festival.


“It’s tough this year for events due to Covid-19 pandemic but we thought we should not cancel the festival completely but rather hold a mini festival through online and that is what we are doing this weekend,” Ngwira said.

The festival which has in the past editions featured top artists such as Erik Paliani and Rick Deja, will have performances from the three artists from their homes.

“We are not holding the festival at our usual venue. The artists we have will give us performances from their homes and people will have a chance of watching through our Lilongwe Jazz Festival online platforms,” he said.


The festival starts Friday and will run for an hour from 7pm to 8pm and then Saturday the same time.

Ngwira said people can watch the festival on their Facebook page and Instagram.

“We are also collaborating with visual artists and their works will be available for purchase through online,” he said.

Apart from attracting top artists, the festival last year also brought on stage students from several schools such as Kamuzu Academy.
