UK-based Zimbabwean gospel singer Jane Doka will on Thursday launch her second album, Tenda, at The Mannenberg in Harare.
The eight-track album is a seamless blend of afro-jazz and a touch of sungura. Her music celebrates the power of the creator in a well-arranged exploration of what the divine can do in the song Handikundikane.
The sixth track on the album titled Baba Vedu has a classical, smooth and prayerful touch, which draws heavily from the Lord’s Prayer.
Doka has already released a live DVD recording of her latest album which was shot on stage in London.
Doka only surfaced in 2009 performing for the first time ever at a charity gospel concert.
She has since received numerous invitations to perform at various events, including the Mystery in Stone Sounds of Africa show in Birmingham in September last year where she made an impact as a curtain-raiser at Fungisai Mashavave’s show.
