Mokoomba + Jali Nyonkoling Kuyateh on Wednesday 17th October 2018
TICKETS ON SALE 9AM 21ST MAY.
Zimbabwe’s most celebrated young band Mokoomba is back with a new offering: ‘Luyando’. Luyando means “mother’s love” in Tonga, a language that is spoken by the original inhabitants of the Zambezi Valley of Southern Africa. But beyond the dictionary definition, Luyando goes to the heart of Mokoomba‘s music. Lyrical and beautifully breezy, Luyando is also a spiritual journey into the heart of Zimbabwean society, culture and tradition.
On Luyando, Mokoomba modified their rock-band oriented line-up to record a more raw, acoustic album. The songs are rooted in the local traditions and life in their hometown of Victoria Falls, a town on the Zambezi River named after the spectacular waterfall. The Zambesi River touches 5 African countries, and serves as a melting pot for diverse cultures as visitors from all around the world come to see Victoria Falls. The word mokoomba means deep respect for the river; thus the name chosen for this group of energetic young musicians, whose shows reflect that energy in contagiously joyful performances. When they first hit the music scene their blend of traditional rhythms and contemporary Zimrock took the world by storm. Mokoomba brought a unique flavour to a scene that was dominated by sungura, reggae and dancehall, urban and afro jazz bands at that time.
This is a standing show.
