Lazarus is an emerging musician from Malawi who is leading the way towards social change for people with albinism in Africa. His debut album, ‘Stomp on the Devi l’, will be released in August 2019. Produced by UK based Producer, Johan Hugo (Mumford & Sons, Baaba Ma al, The Very Best), the album brings us to the streets of Malawi, where the album was recorded outside Lazarus’s house.
Lazarus is bravely bringing his voice and h is story to an International audience, by being the subject of a documentary that premiered 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 i s 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 that their body parts can be used in witchcraft.
Lazarus is quickly crushing stereotypes in his home country Malawi, and beyond, as he leads the way towards social change for people with Albinism in Africa, 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.
