Discover the power of music to change the world in this lecture and performance by Malawian musician Peter Mawanga. Blending traditional African, jazz, and Caribbean rhythms with modern instrumentation, Peter's music has an international flavor that is nevertheless rooted in the music of his native Malawi.
Peter is currently collaborating with UNC alumnus and Fulbright-mtvU recipient Andrew Magill ‘09 on a music project which shares the stories of those infected and affected by AIDS in Malawi. Hear Peter speak about this project and his work mentoring Malawian orphans and street children through music. Also enjoy a video presentation about Peter’s work. Reception following.
