The Malawi Folk Song Project

Conference Seven:

The project seeks to collect Malawis Folk Songs from primary sources (the owners in the villages) and document them in both audio and video formats and publish them on CDs and DVDs. The songs are also transcribed, notated and published in the Birimankhwe Song Book series.
The aim of the project is to make the songs available and accessible to the public and especially youths in different user-friendly formats. The Music Crossroads Academy curriculum focuses on the African Indigenous Music and this project is designed also to produce local material, collected by local people and worked on by local people to be used at the academy by both teachers and students thus building capacity of the people to be able to professionally collect, document and publish our folk songs.
