When she opens the stage for Oliver Mtukudzi on 11th October at Botswanacraft Mshilo will have a golden opportunity to win over loyal music lovers.
There is no doubt in my mind that she will give a sterling performance.
Her switch to the jazz genre was a wise one Friday the 11th many people will be shocked.
Her latest offering “Ndo Enda” has beautiful songs and perhaps with this show she will launch herself to the rest of the world.
Alongside the talented Stream Jazz Band who just returned from a tour in Italy, Tuku who is also fresh from tours in Japan and North America will have to be at his very best.
Mascom and Botswanacraft have done wonderfully in giving local artists a platform where they are able to rub shoulders with seasoned artists and the opportunity to gauge themselves against the best.
Meanwhile Oliver Mtukudzi will be with his full band ‘The Black Spirits’. Tickets for the show are available at Botswanacraft.
You don’t get an endorsement from Kawai unless you are that good.
Award winning South African pianist Shannon Hope will perform at the Cape to Kgale Wine Festival next week Saturday.
Hope is among the few to have been endorsed by Japanese piano master Kawai joining an exclusive club of the likes of Mathews Bellamy and One Republic. From her debut solo album entitled “Still” Hope has brought back heart songs.
A combination of a piano and a powerful voice, with deep seated lyrics never fail to bring tears to my eyes and that is exactly what you will get from Hope.
The show kicks-off at 12 noon at the Grand Palm Gardens. There will be a kiddies supervised entertainment area. Tickets cost P180.
Are these guys comedians? Who starts a show at 19:27, I mean what happened to 19:15hrs, 19:30hrs?
MOD, Ribcraker and Brooks will take Cresta President Hotel by storm this Friday with their witty gig dubbed “The Three Kings”.
The Laff-a-Lot Comedy members are expected to leave everybody in stitches.
Ticketsfor the show cost P90, P150 and P200 for singles, doubles and VIP respectively.
This album by Magloo does not stand a chance in this saturated market.
I have reviewed good products from Bullet Music Productions but this is not one of them.
I have a filing that Magloo is more of a dancer than a vocalist, because I listened to all her songs and I found her wanting.
My perception about the album will perhaps change once I see her perform on stage.
The six track album has songs like Saliko dance, Rato lame, Blackmampatile, Mama, Ntsalake and Ditsala. It gets 4 out of 10.
ST LOUIS SUMMERFEST RE-LOADED
St Louis Lager will host its annual Summer fest Music Show.
In similar fashion to the past two years, this year’s show will be dominated by local artists and DJs; in line with the brand’s desire to develop local talent and offer them a platform to showcase their skills.
Consumers will once again be given an opportunity to select their choice of artist or DJs.
Artists and DJs will have to pre-register first and selection for this year will be done at a regional level i.e.
DJs from each of the six regions that KBL has operations in will compete with their fellow region members.
To get your preferred artist or DJ to the grand finale on December 21st, consumers in those regions will have to buy three quarts or a six pack of St Louis Lager in a bottle store to share with friends, at which point they will receive an entry form that they will write the name of their preferred artist or DJ, before dropping it in the entry box provided.
KBL Marketing Manager for Alcoholic beverages Thabiso Botlhole said following the conclusion of consumer votes on November 28, the top DJs will battle it out at their respective regions to determine the very best in the region.
The one that consumers select as number one will perform at the grand finale at Wharic Park in Gaborone on December 21 2013.
