The Entertainers Promotions have invited European music promoters to this year’s Sound and Light Concert scheduled from September 29-30 at the golden sands of Livingstonia Beach Hotel in Salima.
The concert will be held with “Expose Talent to the World” as a theme.
The Entertainers Promotion Director Tonderai Jai Banda said the move is to enable Malawian artists who are expected to perform at the show to have some international exposure.
“We want to give room for the promoters to have a feel of what Malawi artists can offer on the international platform. We want these promoters to be inviting our artists to their festivals and not the current case where Malawian musicians are always invited by fellow countrymen in diaspora to perform there.
“As entertainers, we believe that coupled with our international stage and quality sound, if our musicians give it all during the event, they will have a chance to sign deals with these European promoters,” said Banda.
At this year’s concert according to Banda, there will be a mixture of old and upcoming musicians who will share the stage.
“We want those who are new in the industry to market themselves and learn something from the veterans. So it will be a mixture of all music genres to make it a full package of entertainment for all,” he said.
Though the list of those expected to perform is not yet complete, amongst those already confirmed according to Banda are The Black Missionaries, Billy Kaunda, Tay Grin, Lulu, Theo Thomson, Sir Patricks, Beanca Wadada and Queen Fyah among others.
Charges will be announced later.
