The young band Konkalazi from Malawi are currently touring Europe: it is their award for having won the African Music Crossroads International festival.
They play at Lloyd Hotel this coming Thursday.

Konkalazi was formed in 2008 at the Music Crossroads Center in area 24 Lilongwe, Malawi. Each of the seven band members comes from a different part of the country. They sing about issues that young Malawians have to deal with: HIV/AIDS, spirituality and relationships.

Music Crossroads International (MCI) is a youth empowerment through music program, providing young people aged between 15 and 25 in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, and Zambia, with musical opportunities and exposure, in addition to training in music and life skills.
