Zimbabwe Reggae/Dancehall Band Fest Is On

Zimbabwe Reggae/Dancehall Band Fest Is On - All is set for the first ever Zimbabwe Reggae/FreeHand Band Festival scheduled for Cresta Lodge Gardens tomorrow featuring some of the top groups in the country.

Organised by Robert "Elder Robi" Zhuwao, the festival is aimed at promoting live bands for reggae and dancehall artistes.

"We have up to 10 groups that will perform backed by full bands. This is the first of its kind and we hope it will encourage more artistes to use full bands instead of backtracks. The gig follows the success of most groups that are now using live bands," Elder Robi said.

According to Elder Robi the festival was not a popularity contest but a platform for artistes to connect with their fans in a carnival atmosphere.

Topping the bill will be Mic Inity backed by Red Radicals a group made up of talented instrumentalists and vocalists.

Mic Inity born Mike Madamombe is one of top reggae/dancehall singers currently rocking the airwaves in Zimbabwe.

His claim to fame may have been as a cover version master, but Mic Inity, will surely not be remembered for singing other people's music.

After a lifetime of singing cover versions from yesteryear greats like Bob Marley to recent tunes from the likes of Jah Cure and Mavado, Mic Inity released his debut 13-track album aptly titled "Freedom".

The album is a social commentary, prayer, dance and collaborative effort, featuring Kenyan Sister Mercy, Jamaican Lutan Faya and rising local dancehall singer and music producer Guspy Warrior.

His booming voice quickly reminds many of Buju Banton and his stage act clearly tells the story of a talented youngster who if he keeps his feet on the ground, is likely to take the world stage by storm. His music caters for both the young and the mature.

Mic Inity is a star in his own right and already his upcoming album titled "Just Reggae -- My Journey" promises to be a big hit on the scene.

Another firm favourite at the festival is Guspy Warrior whose real name is Emmanuel Manyeruke. Guspy Warrior is currently riding high with his chart topper called "Seunononga" that has been doing rounds on almost every radio station.

"It's a show not to be missed because I will be with the entire Mafia 19 Band and we have been busy with rehearsals," he said.

Besides "Seunononga" Guspy Warrior has other hits under his belts such as "Buss Di Shot" and "No Way", a conscious track that discourages the youths from living the fast lane and that there was no short cut to riches.

Nadine Brown probably the only female artiste on the line-up will spice up the festival with her soulful reggae songs. During her sets she usually blends cover versions inspired by top female artistes the likes of Alaine, Queen Ifriqa and Cecile to mention a few.

Her show would not be complete without a collaboration with Mic Inity whom she has been working with ever since she left the Storm. Like Mic Inity, Nadine will also be backed by the Red Radicals.

Other artistes performing include Dhadza D, General Sniper Storm, Freeman, King Shaddy, Cowboys Band and Transit Crew.

Top dancehall sounds Judgment Yard, Legendary Sound and Red Fox Family will also grace the festival.

The show was sponsored by Savanna Tobacco, ZiFM Stereo, and Cresta Hotels among others.
