Pakare Paye line up

This year’s edition of the Spar Pakare Paye Solo Festival, due to take place in a fortnight, will give fans a treat if the line-up of artists is anything to go by.

Organisers announced that among the crowd-pullers are Oliver Mtukudzi, Alick Macheso, Kapfupi, Sulumani Chimbetu, Chiwoniso Maraire, Steve Makoni, and gospel star, Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave.

Also to look out for at the festival are the internationally acclaimed Steve Dyer, the South African-born saxophonist and Kenyan star, Suzanna Owiyo, as well as American Beatrice Eastwood.

Upcoming Zimbabwean artists, Edith Katiji, Munya Mataruse, Watson Junior Chidzomba, Donald Kanyuchi, Nqobile Malinga, Josh Meck and Selmor Mtukudzi complete the line up.

The festival is a brainchild of Mtukudzi, Zimbabwe’s most successful musician, to provide a forum for individual artists to develop more confidence and faith in themselves.

It started as a self-sponsored project funded by Mtukudzi five years ago, but has grown to attract a partner in the form of the Spar. This year, the event will feature comedy, dance, drama, poetry, story-telling, instrumentation, and martial arts, organisers said.
