All set for Lilongwe jazz festival


Organisers of the Lilongwe Jazz festival say all is set for the event which will be held from Friday to Saturday at Lilongwe Golf Club.

One of the organisers Owen Mbilizi said the two day festival will provide an opportunity to young up-and-coming artists to learn about and explore Jazz.

“We want to teach these young stars so that they can perform at their best, because we strongly believe that these young stars can learn Jazz very impressively,” he said.
