If you are a young talented singer with amazing songwriting skills or a natural born actor/actress looking for a breakthrough, then this is your chance to be part of the coolest and relevant youth icon revolution.
Audio Clinic productions, Music Crossroads, Lake of Stars and Rhythm of Life have teamed up in a quest to find the next young biggest stars.
“As media and creative industry professionals we share a joint passion for nurturing youth talent and using our joint expertise as creative industry professionals with Malawi and international expertise in music and media to make a difference in the country.
“The youth are the biggest demographic in the country, but also they have the least opportunities. We want to create the biggest and most exciting youth media brand in Malawi – The band. Both boys and girls will be in the band. The youth need a cool, dynamic and conscious media brand to give voice to them, to social issues and to be part of nurturing the positive impact in an increasingly progressive Malawi,” narrated Zilanie Gondwe, one of the organizers.
Being an initiative for the cool kids, application is strictly via Whatsapp video or voice note (singing) to the number 099 192 8629. The deadline for receiving applications is 28 September.
To apply, both boys and girls have to be aged 17-22 years old (under 18 year olds must get consent from parent/guardian) and able to commit full time and available to travel throughout the country.
For audio, record yourself singing one song (in local language or English) with no backing CD but one can play own instrumental accompaniment.
For video, record yourself acting a folk tale, poem or a movie scene from a play or film (monologue).
Include your name, age, phone number, gender and district. Submit your singing or acting performance in one recording (maximum of 2mins).
