Stars rock on Lake Malawi's shores

Hundreds of people have been flocking to the shores of Lake Malawi to attend the annual Lake of Stars music festival.

The line-up included local artists like the Black Missionaries and Lucius Banda, and foreign ones like South Africa's Freshlyground and the UK's Beverley Knight.

Raphael Tenthani went along to the festival and sent this report for the BBC's Network Africa programme.
