Triple treat at Carnival

HARARE - Music lovers are in for a treat at the Harare International Carnival pencilled for May 16-25.

The carnival will see different musical groups showcasing their talent.

The event will be split into the Sungura Night, Carnival Gospel Concert, Zim dancehall all slotted for Harare, and the Bira Night — which is  to be held in Domboshawa.

The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA), who are organising the event in the capital, said they have empowered local music promoters to organise concerts on their behalf as a way of giving back to the community.

“We have assigned local promoters including Partson Chimbodza of Chipaz Promotions to organise concerts on our behalf and we are doing this to promote our promoters and giving back to the community,” said Sugar Chagonda, the ZTA publicist.

Chimbodza said the Zim dancehall concert will be held in the Harare Gardens on May 24 and the gig will comprise Winky D, Shinsoman, Soul Jah Love, Dhadza D, King Shaddy, Seh Calaz, Kinna, Lady Squanda, Gary B and Templeman.

The Sungura Night will be held at Pamuzinda Ice and Fire on May 23 and will be headlined by Alick Macheso and Jacob Moyana of the Munotidako fame.

Jah Prayzah and Bev are also lined up for the Sungura Night.

“We know Bev as a dancer and she made her name through dancing sungura songs while Jah Prayzah’s music is a fusion of sungura, jazz and other beats hence for simplicity’s sake he is a sungura artiste,” said Chimbodza.

The Chipaz Promotions director said they have decided to hold the event at Pamuzinda Ice and Fire, a joint located along Bulawayo Road in Kuwadzana suburb, because the genre is appreciated better by the audience who frequent that joint.

“Since the event will be headlined by Macheso, who commands a big crowd, we have decided to put the event at Pamuzinda Ice and Fire, a joint patronised by many of his fans,” Chimbodza said.

He explained the inclusion of Moyana, saying he was a massively-talented artiste who is being underrated in showbiz.

“Moyana is one sungura artiste with amazing talent but the artiste is underrated in the music industry.

“So, it is our duty as promoters to encourage and give due support to musicians of this nature such that he can realise his full potential,” said Chimbodza.

The Carnival Gospel Concert will be held at Harare International Conference Centre on Saturday May 17 and it will feature Charles and Olivia Charamba, Mathias Mhere, Mudiwa, Pastor G and Vabati VaJehova among others.

The event is expected to kick start at 1pm till 8pm.
