Abba's music to be celebrated in Harare

HARARE - As the  legendary superband Abba prepares to reunite for a 2017 or 2018 gig, the music of the group continues to wow fans across the world, including two generations that have grown up in the years since the band first split up in the early 80s.

In Zimbabwe, the music of Abba remains as popular as ever, and a tribute show featuring some of the music will be held in Harare in November, aimed at highlighting some of their most popular hits in a supper show.

This will be the November “Friday show” at The Mustard Seed in Highlands, where the most recent shows in September and October have included focuses on show music from stage and screen.

The November show will feature local singers Mande Snyman and Storm Whittaker, whose performance will include a focus section that highlights the story of Abba and showcases many of their songs, after which there is a free gig and a chance for audiences to get up and dance.

A spokesperson for The Mustard Seed said the show was called Abba-solutely Fabulous, a play on the title of the recent hit movie that has nothing to do with Abba, but is based on the 80s and 90s hit TV series Absolutely Fabulous.

“It will take place at The Mustard Seed on Friday November 18 as a supper show and we look forward to Abba fans of all ages coming along to have fun,” he said.

Snyman and Whittaker are two of Harare’s most experienced show singers, with a string of Reps stage shows under their belts and a long tradition of singing at solo and other shows not only in Harare but across Zimbabwe.
