Local Reggae gospel music lovers are set to kick-start 2019 on a high note following news that Christafari will perform in Malawi.
The group, together with another reggae musician, Avion Blackman, is on a tour of Africa that will see them holding shows in Tanzania, Kenya and Malawi.
In Malawi, the group is scheduled to perform in Lilongwe on January 10 to 12, according to one of the organisers, Thoko Chimbali.
“The show will give Malawians a chance to interact with one of the most revered gospel groups of our time. Christafari is travelling to Kenya and Tanzania and as local organisers, we thought of asking them to also come to Malawi.
“You will notice that the main show is on a Thursday due to the tight schedule that the group has coupled with venue availability. Christafari is a group that focuses more on ministry and have asked us to organise some free shows for them,” explained Chimbali.
According to a poster announcing the show, Christafari and Blackman will hold the main event in Malawi at Sunbird Capital Hotel on January 10.
Dubbed None Left Behind, the show will feature curtain-raisers such as Faith Mussa, Sam Mjura Mkandawire, Sangwani Munthali and Suffix.
Meanwhile, the organisers are working with potential hosts for free shows.
“Charistafari had indicated that they would prefer to visit a prison and any outskirt in town. If all goes well, we will have the main show on Thursday and this has been confirmed as well as Friday and Saturday too.
“For the prison show, we will go to Maula and for the open gig it will either be at Kamuzu Institute for Sports or Kalambo Primary School ground in Area 25. Once we confirm the venues, we will announce to the public,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the group’s website christafari.com <http://christafari.com/> has listed the Malawi shows.
“This is in the city targeting the people that already know Christafari and the ones that love reggae music both Christians and non-Christians,” reads information on the Capital Hotel show. n
