Former Mhodzi Tribe backing vocalist, Feli Nandi, says she is now her own lady in showbiz after leaving Mbeu.
The versatile songbird has been holding a series of sold out gigs at some of the capital’s upmarket venues.
She seems to have hit a purple patch and tonight, she will be in action at Theatre in the Park.
Nestled in the heart of the Harare Gardens, the venue is no doubt the place for those yearning for class and mature music.
It runs from 6pm till late.
In a statement, the songbird promised a polished show.
Buoyed by the success of her latest album, Izwi, which is trending well, Feli Nandi hopes to build on that momentum.
Some of the songs popular with fans are “Ndoona iwewe”, the title “Inzwi” and “Mufaro”.
In a statement, Rooftop Promotions programmes manager, Passmore Ndlovu, said: “The venue is ready to host this concert.
“I urge the public to book their tickets in advance to avoid pressure at the entrance. Feli is a music diva and is commended for her stage presence.
“Her deep Shona lyrics and powerful messages conveyed in a modern musical style are so impressive that you can’t resist the show,” he said.
Admission is $10 and tickets are available at Theatre in the Park offices located in the Harare Gardens.
Meanwhile, the venue has also announced the return of one of the most powerful local bands from the late 90s to the early 2000s, Pamuhacha hit-makers, Mateo and Friends with a concert slated for December 9.
A lot is expected from the trio, which made waves back in the day before going separate ways.
Mateo had quit music to pursue pastoral duties while Patience Musa established herself as a radio and television personality.
She has since joined the corporate world while Willom Tight once combined forces with South Africa based Dino Mudondo before their split in recent years.
Willom has been pursuing a solo career while Dino is doing well across the Limpopo where he has ventured into a coal business.
He still pursues music in his spare time since it’s a calling from God that he can’t resist.
