HARARE - All roads tonight lead to Pakare Paye Arts Centre in Norton where a number of prominent musicians will take turns to entertain friends and fans of the late Sam Mtukudzi in a gig dubbed “Sam Mtukudzi Commemoration”.
While the main focus will be on Gary Tight, who will perform Sam’s songs, music fans will be thrilled as Oliver Mtukudzi will perform in what many believe will be an emotional display as the super star commemorates his lost son.
Other musicians who will add the glitz to the event include Suluman Chimbetu, Jah Prayzah and Alick Macheso.
Clare performs at Pablo’z dinner jazz night
Singing sensation Clare Nyakujara will tomorrow, Saturday perform at a dinner jazz night at Pablo’z, a beautiful establishment right in the hub of up-market Sam Levy’s Village, Borrowdale.
Nyakujara will kick start the Pablo’z dinner jazz night as the club promotes jazz singers who have had little space to showcase.
“I am thrilled to be performing on a jazz night, especially as I would be singing for diners. It is important that as jazz artistes we have a ground to perform and thankfully to Pablo’z Club for reviving our slot as I understand a number of other singers will be gracing the facility every week.
“I am happy to be the first to perform in this programme and I will be bringing a full band with me.”
Meanwhile, catch Rob Macson and other Electric Concepts DJ’s in the mix while going all out with an Open Bar at Pablo’z today from 3pm.
