Cocktail at the EU Residence | 2023 Project Launch

Having received funding (€68,000) from the SoundConnectsFund, an initiative by @Music In Africa and the Goethe Institut to implement the 2023 Music4Malawi, the Ntha Foundation team reached out to the European Union Delegation to Malawi, to alert them we were implementing locally an internationally European Union funded project.

We were honored to have been hosted at a cocktail reception, held by His Excellency Rune Skinnebach, Ambassador of the Delegation to the European Union to Malawi at the European Union Residence commemorating the launch of the Music4Malawi project launch.

The purpose of this event was to launch the 2nd cohort of Music4Malawi.

The event was graced by Malawian stars – the “who’s who”s of Lilongwe, and partly Blantyre city.

Music4Malawi is a music and creative resource sharing platform, an initiative under the Kwathu Innovation & Creative Centre, operationalised by the Ntha Foundation – aiming at building capacity of Malawian artists and creatives from and based in Malawi through interactive workshops, content development and distribution as well as a music showcase event.

We were also graced with a Bants2Business x #TheresaTalk pop-up at the #M4M launch; conversations about what it is going to take to make Malawian music go global – a chat with industry leaders and players.

At the Music4Malawi launch event, we were delighted to showcase captivating performances by Bucci and Macelba. Their extraordinary talents mesmerized the audience and played a significant role in promoting music awareness. The inclusion of these exceptional artists added depth and vibrancy to the event, leaving a lasting impact on all attendees. Their performances served as a testament to the power of music in fostering cultural exchange, creativity, and community engagement.
