The internationally acclaimed Melodians Steel Orchestra departed London on board Kenya Airways flight to Zambia to play at the British Embassy in Lusaka for the Queen’s Birthday Party. The orchestra is now in its 26th year and has travelled to over 30 countries throughout the world to play at major musical events. After playing at the Queen’s Birthday Party, the orchestra flew to Livingstone to play at the first ever Livingstone Cultural Arts Festival on the Waterfront which marked the bicentenary of the birth of the Scottish missionary David Livingstone. The Melodians added some of their lively rhythm and beat to the festival and gave the event a party atmosphere. The Orchestra flew on Kenya Airways new route to Livingstone. Kenya Airways now flies three times weekly between Livingstone and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi going via Harare in Zimbabwe. The Livingstone flights are operational on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
