Leading protest music outfit, Comrade Fatso and Chabvondoka, are set to give their fans a treat on Friday evening as they will perform an unplugged acoustic session at Alliance Française.
The band, which is back from touring Europe and the Caribbean, will be mellowing down their usually riotous set to give fans an intimate performance.
Comrade Fatso said he would be performing some new, yet-to-be-released, tracks as well as many of the group’s popular crowd favourites.
He said their group has had a busy and successful year, having toured Germany, Austria and South Africa in May and June and then setting off for their tour in Serbia, Eastern Europe, with a performance at the Exit Festival, one of Europe’s most prestigious events.
The three-day festival, held in July, has attracted up to 50 000 people a day and has featured names such as Madonna, Snoop Dogg and Wu Tang Clan.
It has been running for over 10 years and has become a key festival on the European circuit.
Comrade Fatso and Chabvondoka performed on the Suba Stage at Exit, alongside major names like Missy Elliot, David Guetta, The Chemical Brothers and Faith No More. After the successful Serbia show, Comrade Fatso flew to the Caribbean island of Barbados where he made headlines at the Crop Over Festival, the island’s biggest festival.
Crop Over is a festival that reverberates to the island sounds of calypso and soca.
