Documentary about the music culture of Malawi - "Deep Roots Malawi" (55min)

Back in 2008, musician Kenny Gilmore, who grew up in Malawi, and an international film and recording team travelled through Malawi to document and record the country's musical past and present, investigating the fusion of indigenous rhythms with contemporary beats and illuminating the path for the future of Malawian music. The result of their journey through Malawi is the 55-min-documentary "Deep Roots Malawi", which takes the viewer right into  heart of the Malawian music culture featuring  recordings from a range of secular individual musicians, small groups and cultural dance troupes such as Lucuis Banda, The Black Missionaries, and Body, Mind & Soul at the Warehouse, Umunthu Theatre and the Lake of Stars Festival.

Kudos Kenny Gilmore, Promote Africa and all the musicians of Malawi.
