ZVISHAVANE-BASED band, Shuro, will have an opportunity to entice renowned music promoters this week when they perform in Harare for the first time.
The group is scheduled to stage a show at the Book Café on Saturday, courtesy of Pamberi Trust development programmes.
The Patrick Mbewe-led outfit has made a name in the Midlands province and staged shows in Mutare and Masvingo.
Pen Yon of Pamberi Trust said they would give the group an opportunity to prove themselves in the capital because of their immense talent that has seen the band making an impact in Midlands.
“Shuro is hot in the Midlands circuit and are thrilled to perform in the capital for the first time,” said Yon.
“The band has grown from strength to strength in their home town, popular at private functions, weddings, galas and regular public shows. They have shared the stage at various high-profile events with popular artists like Sulumani Chimbetu, Peter Moyo, Dino Mudondo, Selmor Mtukudzi and Tendai Manatsa.
“The highlight in their journey so far has been performing as a curtain-raiser for Oliver Mtukudzi in Masvingo last year.
“They deliver a lively all-round entertainment with fresh originals, some favourite covers and an eclectic mix of modern and traditional music styles.”
The 10-member band has outstanding vocal talent in the form of young women artistes Agnes Sambewe and Patience Mpofu. Shuro has two albums to their credit, the latest being Welcome to Zvishavane, featuring some traditional folk songs.
