Forgotten urban grooves duo Kuligan and Calabash of Pukunyu and Sori Ndanga Ndakadhakwa fame are scheduled to hold their first show this Easter holiday at Club-On-Point in Southerton since reuniting early this year.
The duo returns after almost a decade of absence in a gig not to be missed by dancehall lovers. Kuligan and Kalabash band manager Abel “Dr Bellz” Phiri said the musicians were on a serious comeback campaign.
“This Easter holiday we are going to have a family show at Wadzanai shopping centre in Shamva. From there, we go to Southerton where we will play several of our new songs from our upcoming album entitled Recharged and Reloaded,” said Phiri.
The group, originally from the sugarcane farming town of Chiredzi, relocated to Harare for a reunion and is set to take the music industry by storm. If the performance they exhibited at a rehearsal recently is anything to go by, then Kuligan, real name Kudakwashe Kanyimo and Artwell “Calabash” Kwenda are set to reclaim popularity.
“The duo’s silence was a result of their desires to pursue professional studies, but now they are done and ready to roll again,” added Phiri.
Kuligan had spent a couple of years in South Africa studying education and sound engineering, whilst Kwenda studied metal fabrication and is currently working for a local company.
Phiri promised fireworks when they get back on stage and promised fans for value for money. Club-On-Point owner, who referred to herself as Mai Tanaka, said she had faith in Kuligan and Calabash, which is why she chose them to launch their comeback at her place.
