Soul and blues meet reggae on Night Under the Stars

by Staff Writer

Night Under the Stars (NUTS) for August 2018 presents a collaboration between four musicians who bring their unique styles onto one stage on Friday 03 August 2018, 19:00.

 Hailing from three different countries in Africa, they are set to amaze Namibia on a hopefully not too cold evening.

Well-known and established on the local music scene, Miss H from the Namibian coast, Swakopmund, has graced many stages and events with her powerful voice that has the audience tremble.

Associated with blues and soul, Miss H is set to compliment associates, like Tatenda Mupfumira, who has been playing the piano for the past 19 years.

Hailing from Harare in Zimbabwe, Tatenda who is also known as Ray, has over the years developed his musical abilities and acquired skills in the mbira, marimba, chipendani and hosho.

“I am really looking forward to perform at NUTS because it is a collaboration and challenges not just my skills but those of all musicians forming part of the concert,” said Tatenda, who describes himself as a multi- instrumentalist loop artist.

Also from Zimbabwe but Bulawayo is Titus Mapundu, who regularly puts his percussion skills on stage at local establishments.

 “He is a solid and the tightest drummer I know, hands down,” said Tatenda.

Last but not least is Emmanuel Ndifon, who hails from the Cross River State in Nigeria and has been in Namibia for the past 9 years.

He plays the electric guitar and is inspired by musicians like Johan Mayer and Amy Winehouse, who are known for their contemporary approaches to old styles such as blues, rock/pop and country.

Join us for a concert by young musicians who take internationally defined genres and provide the audience with their interpretation.

Entrance costs 20 NAD and refreshments are always available.?The Goethe-Institut Namibia is located on 1-5 Fidel Castro Street.?
