Byo's Nobuntu comes to Harare

HARARE - Nobuthu, an all-female acapella quintet from Bulawayo, will perform at the launch of the Magitare Live Acoustic Night event, set for Harare City Library on Friday.

The internationally-acclaimed group, made up of Thandeka Moyo, Joyline Sibanda, Heather Dube, Duduzile Sibanda and Zanele Manhenga, will be the star attraction at the event that has been known as Acoustic Night for the last seven years.
Nobuntu, which has two albums, Thina (2013) and Ekhaya (2016), under its belt, has performed in countries such as Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium and Canada.

Rising artiste Tariro neGitare, the brains behind the event, is happy to host a group of Nobuntu’s calibre at the launch of the rebranded platform which seeks to help artistes improve their craft.
“It has empowered many artistes, providing not only a performance platform, but also a professional development opportunity for the artistes that we work with. We have decided to rebrand it to the Magitare Live Acoustic Night,” Tariro neGitare said.

She added that the Magitare Live Acoustic Night event will incorporate a variety of genres.
“The acoustic night is a live performance platform infusing different art forms such as music, poetry and comedy in a safe, family-friendly environment. We are hosting it at the Harare City Library as a move to address the plight of lack of infrastructure and spaces for creatives.

“We wish to partner with city spaces and transform them creatively so as to maximise existing spaces and use them to bring people together to network and enjoy and celebrate Zimbabwean talent in the process,” the rising songstress
In addition to Nobuntu, which was nominated in the Musician of the Year category at the Zimbabwe International Women Awards in London in 2015, the Magitare Live Acoustic Night launch will also feature performances by poet U Mind as well as musicians Munyaradzi Nyamarebvu, Libert Mathole and Tariro neGitare.
