Malawi has a wealth of local musical talent, and the small scale of the scene means it’s easy to see top-notch acts for cheap. For an introduction, check out the Black Missionaries’ upbeat reggae, silky-voiced Lucius Banda, rapper Tay Grin, international act The Very Best, or the versatile Ben Mankhamba (in photo). All can be found on YouTube. In cities, keep an eye out for posters advertising upcoming shows. Every September or October, both Malawian and international musicians converge on the shores of Lake Malawi for the annual Lake of Stars festival. This is a prime – though overwhelming – opportunity to see some of the country’s best acts.
