Lazarus, an emerging musician from Malawi who is leading the way towards social change for people with albinism in Africa has finally drops visuals for his song “Ndife Alendo”.
His debut album, ‘Stomp on the Devil’, will be released in September 2019. Produced by UK based Producer, Johan Hugo (Mumford & Sons, Baaba Maal, The Very Best), the album brings us to the streets of Malawi, where the album was produced on-site.
Lazarus is bravely bringing his voice and his story to an International audience, by being the subject of a documentary that will premiere at the Tribeca film festival on April 27th.
The documentary is Directed and Produced by Oscar nominated, Emmy winning filmmakers, David Darg and Bryn Mooser.
Madonna is an Executive Producer on the film.
The film documents the real risks that people with albinism in Malawi live with each day, as kidnappings and murders take place because of the unfounded belief in their power.
The scoring of the film by Johan Hugo is made from tiny loops of Lazarus’ vocal, banjo, and drum with additional piano by Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons.
Lazarus is quickly becoming a leader in the movement towards change for people with albinism, with he and his team garnering support from the United Nations, Amnesty International, Oxfam, the US Ambassador in Malawi, and people in the music and film industry who rally behind Lazarus to stop the killings of people with albinism.
