The Lake of Stars Festival

One of Africa’s best music festivals, in Malawi, the Lake of Stars festival at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge, at Mangochi on the shores of Lake Malawi, is covered in the Observer today. It’s a lively piece, highlighting the festival’s hugely positive influence on one of Africa’s poorest countries.

Kudos to Will Jameson for getting it off the ground, and to the thousands of people who support it. Still time to book for this year!

About Richard Trillo

I'm the author of Rough Guides to Kenya, Madagascar and West Africa, and co-author of Rough Guides to First-Time Africa and The Gambia. I was formerly editor of the African chapters of the Rough Guide to World Music. The blogs for Kenya, West Africa and First-Time Africa are a way for me to post news for readers and for readers to keep in touch with me and with info from other travellers, posting updates, news and comments. Or that's the idea. To be honest the blogs barely get any attention from me these days. I am the Kenya Programme Manager at the safari tour operator Expert Africa and was previously a freelance writer, editor and PR consultant, and before that Director of Communications at the publisher Rough Guides.
