Mvangie Arts is set to launch its poetry album Recite For Mothers this October in the capital Lilongwe.
Founder and director for the Lilongwe-based arts firm Patwell Phiri confirmed the development in an interview on Sunday.
Phiri said the album was released on July 27 and has a total of 27 poems from 27 poets.
“We are expecting to launch it on October 13 at Lilongwe CCAP Hall. We wanted to give mothers a special gift just by appreciating and recognising the great work that they do to the society,” he said.
Phiri said part of the money raised during the launch will be used to cheer up mothers during Mothers’ Day at a hospital to be identified soon.
Phiri, who once served as Poetry Association of Malawi (PAM) regional chairperson for the Central Region, urged people to come in large numbers for the launch.
“People should expect the unique performances at the launch. We will have some notable women in society to spice up the event,” he said adding that so far member of Parliament for Lilongwe City South Constituency Nancy Tembo has confirmed her presence during the launch.
Phiri said poems in the Recite For Mothers were recorded at various studios around the country but mastered under Mvangie Arts.
Some of the poems in the album are Gift To My Mom by Amfumu Kenneth Khondiwa, Ali Ndi Amawo by Luckier Chikopa, Mukandinenele Kwa Amai by Mussa Ngwira.
