Having just taken first place in the provincial Chibuku Road to Fame competition in Gwanda, the band travelled on to South Africa. This was their second trip to Durban, after making an impact last year during the international COP17 event where they headlined a two-week cultural festival at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
Tanga Pasi took its five core members- Sinini Ngwenya on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Pamela Ngwenya on vocals, keyboard and wind instruments, Blessing Shamu on bass guitar, Mthakazelwa Nyathi and lead guitar and Caleb Dube on drums-to entertain audiences at four shows around Durban. The group kicked off their mini-tour at St Clement’s Art Space on June 4, with their grand finale at the famous Rainbow Theatre in Pinetown on June 10.
The band received a hearty welcome from a diverse range of audiences, who appreciated their unique fusion of reggae, afro-jazz, folk, rock, Kalanga rhythms and traditional Ndebele harmonies.
The group is thrilled to have won the Chibuku provincial competition and is set to represent Matebeleland South at the national level in Harare at the end of September. They are available for local bookings and can be contacted on:[email protected]@gmail.comPost published in: Entertainment
