RISING mbira artist, Nancy “Nasibo” Mutize, will perform at Theatre in the Park tomorrow.
Rooftop Promotions and Dollarbill Entertainment are behind Nasibo’s show, which will be held under the banner ‘Jazz and Soul Friday Night’.
The three-hour show starts at 7pm.
In a statement, Rooftop Promotions programmes and communications manager, Passmore Ndlovu, said that they were proud to be hosting rising artists.
After the Good Friday’s show, said Ndlovu, Nasibo will return to the same venue on April 29 to launch her album titled Zaruwe.
He also highlighted some of Nasibo’s achievements.
“Nasibo performed in Brussels, Belgium, this year in February, after another successful shows in Rwanda and Tanzania in 2021.
“In the same year 2021, she was invited to perform at a cultural musical experiment called Maisha Music Experiment in Ethiopia, this was organised by the European Union delegation to the African Union.
“She also had another successful performance in South Africa in 2020,” he said.
Ndlovu described Nasibo as a dedicated artist determined to succeed.
“As a product of the Music Crossroads, Nasibo was part of the Music Crossroads Divas Band where she was privileged to share the stage with big artists like Habib Koite, Oliver Mtukudzi, Jah Prayzah and Edith Weutonga, at HIFA in Harare.
“In fact, she has sung and played her mbira instrument at different occasions locally.
“She is a social and cultural activist, therefore, she is inspired to sing about issues mostly affecting women and children.
“Her music pushes Ubuntu and other social issues,” he added.
Meanwhile, Theatre in the Park will next week host FaB Ovation, a local jazz band led by Brennan Wyngard.
The Jazz and Soul Friday Night is the brainchild of Rooftop Promotions and Dollarbill Entertainment.
