German ambassador to Malawi has called on Blantyre Arts Festival to consider introducing beat boxing to add flare to the proceedings.

Jurgen Borsch said it is high time BAF brought on board the exciting use of voice to come up with a catchy beat saying it would inspire the younger generation to come to the festival.

Borsch told the audience that his son is Germany's national champion beat boxing and would have loved to perform but had other engagements.

On his part deputy mayor for the City of Blantyre applauded BAF for being vibrant and diverse.
