Jazz Saxophonist, Steve Bedi, will on October 4 play at a special concert in Lilongwe, Malawi.

In aid of the UNAIDS Protect the Goal campaign, it will also feature Owen Mbilizi and the Jazz Cafe Band.

The event will be held at the Bingu International Conference Centre.

Bedi, who played at the Sunbird Festival in Malawi some three weeks ago, and also at the Lake of Stars Festival, tells enewsgh.com in a Facebook chat that he was “proud to see other musicians and artists hanging around just to watch the Ghanaian Saxophonist.”

“Just after my performance I found out that the stage manager was crying during my performance because they’ve never had such and electrifying performance since the birth of this festival 9yrs ago and the organisers were so happy to have me as the first artist from West Africa to rock the entire festival.

“The festival was great and well attended. I performed with my 4-piece band from Ghana yesterday on the TNM Stage @3:45pm and it was really great.”

The October 4 date will also see in attendance the Vice President of Malawi, and other government officials, as well as High Commissioners from South Africa, Tanzania, UK, USA, and Heads and members of UN organisations in Malawi.

“The show is going to be packed with high profile people and I’m going to give the audience a great dose of Contemporary African jazz music and beautiful tunes from Ghana,” he adds.
