Candlelit Acoustic @ The Living Room

Every Tuesday Lilongwe settles down to hear acoustic music from the bright young musicians who make up a vibrant alternative scene in this city. With different artists performing every week, you’ll hear all kinds of styles – r n b, rock, traditional, reggae, ballads, country, jazz, modern afro sounds and even Indian music.

The event has been running since December 31st 2012 when a power cut meant the the musician playing that night, Danny Kalima, play unplugged and candles be spread around the very cosy living room cafe. The vibe was so electric that the decision was made for it to be a weekly event to fall on a Tuesday, and to be kept warm by candlelight.
