Generator, who made her name on the local showbiz scene through her exceptional dancing skills ended her relationship with Jah Prayzah’s Third Generation band after being fired in January for indiscipline.

She told NewsDay that she has chosen to follow her own vision by forming the band with a name derived from traditional instruments.

“It is true that I have formed a band composed of talented individuals that will shake the music industry,” Generator said.

“The band’s name Ngorimba Fusion Band is derived from our use of traditional instruments like ngoma and marimba.”

Generator said the band will hold its first show on April 5 in Chitungwiza at Zengeza 2 car park near TM Supermarket.

On the lead guitar will be former Andy Brown and Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave guitarist Pessy Chidodo, Victor Gwavava on the keyboards and bassist Edson December who once played for Sandra Ndebele and Beater Mangethe.

On the drums will be Prince Mutongi who once played with Mannex and Charles Charamba and Jackson Dick while Isaac Chikuwa plays the mbira.

Chikuwa has vast experience having played for the late Ephat Mujuru and later Mbira DzeNharira.

Generator, Big Chabvonga and Ashley Adams will be responsible for the vocals.

She said she hoped this time it would work after having her dismal first trial with Size 10 Jazz Band in 2008 which failed to record a single track.

All members of Size 10 Jazz Band left for greener pastures to neighbouring South Africa and Botswana.
