Erik Paliani to jazz up UMP festival

Written by  Zaward Likatho, Mana

Nde'feyo Entertainment and Nzika Arts, producers of the Urban Music People (UMP) Awards and Festival, have engaged the country’s international Jazz maestro, Erik Paliani to spice up this year’s event.

I give my best, Paliani I give my best, Paliani

The festival will be held on October 15 in Blantyre at Game Stores’ underground car park. It will be characterised by a fashion show, fashion booths, UMP awards nominations announcement and party, music performance and media awards. Paliani has since described the event as an opportunity to expand his fan-base.

“I am excited to perform because I am on a mission to expand my audience. This event has therefore allowed me to introduce my musical brand to a wider and more youthful audience,” said Paliani.

Paliani then assured patronage to the event of a performance which will be of high quality and well-rehearsed.

“I give the best of my capabilities at all times. As a travelling musician, I am constantly faced with different audiences, scenarios and settings. For the past 15 years I have performed for audiences that can't even translate my language. But they somehow manage to translate my soul. I believe the same will be true to this event,” he said.

UMP Festival is a celebration of Malawi's urban music, lifestyle and culture. The UMP Awards is a ceremony that recognises Malawi’s exceptional urban music talent. The UMP Fashion Night will precede UMP Awards and Festival set for November 18th at the Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe and November 19th at the Blantyre Sports Club in Blantyre.
