U.S. Embassy to Commemorate World AIDS Day with Musical Performance

In commemoration of World AIDS Day the United States Embassy presents: “Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS”, a musical performance by Fulbright scholar Andrew Finn McGill, Peter Mawanga and the aMaravi Movement on November 30, 2011 at Crossroads Hotel Auditorium from 6:30 p.m.

The musical group fuses traditional African and American music with an acoustic guitar, mangolongondo (marimba) violin and Irish traditional instruments.

The commemoration will be held under the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) theme: "Leading with Science, Uniting for Action." The theme reflects the U.S. commitment to building on recent scientific advances to help move toward the goal of an AIDS-free generation.

The U.S. Embassy will host this event to honor the people in Malawi and around the world who have been impacted by the AIDS epidemic - those who are living with HIV, those we have lost, and the caregivers, families, friends and communities who have provided support.
