HARMONY IN THE GHETTO
The Francistown leg of the Generations in Harmony concert provided revellers in the second city the chance to enjoy the Metropolitan sponsored show for the first time.
The annual music festival that has previously been a capital city affair, hit the spot as music lovers responded to the call to enjoy a night in the company of home grown legends Shanti Lo and Banjo Mosele as well young and emerging Sharon of My Star popularity, and Hip Hop artist Zeus.
Shanti dished out his usual high polished, high-energy performance with tracks from his best album award nominated Lorato, before branching out to cover the Gladys Knight classic “ End of the Road” and getting the audience singing along.
Banjo Mosele and his band also turned the clock back to the psychedelic 60’s with Jimi Hendrix style wigs and songs from the era, colourfully adding to the generations theme of the evening.
Young star Sharon moved a step higher with some Kalanga songs to the delight of most Ghetto dwellers, and a rendition of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ to the delight of most males dressed as she was in a figure squeezing black dress that shaped her body parts for maximum attention.
The hit show ended with a grand finale as
Shanti joined Banjo and company in a jam session that proved the perfect parting shot as they combined to do justice to Mosele’s classic signature tune
Ntsa e jele ntsanyana, to the appropriate acclaim of a well-satisfied audience.
