We are happy to announce that Waliko Makhala, TV Malawi’s Chief Producer, has joined the production team for Deep Roots Malawi. Currently, Waliko schedules air-play and archives material for TV Malawi programs and produces Zakwathu, a popular series exploring the cultural heritage of Malawi.

Therefore, Deep Roots Malawi will be a featured news source as part of the Zakwathu series in 2008. Before joining TV Malawi, Waliko worked as a professional ethnomusicologist for the Malawian Department of Cultural Affairs from 1986-1999 .

A skilled guitarist, vocalist and master of the traditional Malawian mouth bow, he is a staple of Blantyre’s live music scene. Waliko’s life devotion has been the preservation of Malawian cultural heritage, so he is excited to join the Deep Roots team and bring Malawian culture to a global audience.
