Watch: Short Film on Music Crossroads featuring Konkalazi

Here’s an awesome video by filmmaker Sam Palmer showing a day at the Lilongwe academy of southern African initiative Music Crossroads. The project aims to build youth empowerment by organising workshops for young people with a passion for music. It trains them in skills such as theory, rhythm, stage presence and business. The workshops are a huge benefit for the young musician who is looking at accessing higher music education or making a career out of music.

The film also features Malawian band Konkalazi – winners of the Music Crossroads International Festival 2012 – and an interview with their lead singer Danny Kalima. See another of Konkalazi’s electrifying live performances here.
