AFRO-SOUL songstress Tariro neGitare (real name Tariro Ruzvidzo) returns to the Zimbabwe-Germany Society on Saturday after some months, bringing her unique brand of music to the venue.
The concert, dubbed Love is a verb, promises to be a thriller as Tariro neGitare is known to put up top-notch performances.
Speaking to NewsDay, Tariro neGitare promised an inspiring live performance.
“This concert’s edition will centre on the theme ‘Love is a verb’ and I am urging fans to join us for a celebration of life and love,” she said.
“I promise an authentic, original and inspiring performance which is a genuine in-depth expression of who Tariro neGitare is.”
Tariro neGitare, a product of the Book Café’s Sistaz Open Mic that has also uncovered several top female artistes, believes she is moving in the right direction.
“I do not usually want to blow my own trumpet, but I am happy that I am managing to stand the test of time and happy that my music is being appreciated beyond borders,” Tariro neGitare said.
Tariro neGitare has performed at various festivals both locally and internationally.
In June, she performed at Les Acousti’Coeur Festival and at Africa’s biggest hip-hop festival FESTA2H in Senegal sharing the stage with artistes from Belgium, Brazil, Gambia, Mauritania, Senegal, Spain, Morocco, United States, Denmark, Switzerland and Canada.
Tariro neGitare has also collaborated with German bands Favo and Jamaram and toured Germany last year with the latter.
She is currently riding high with her debut 10-track self-titled album Tariro neGitare with songs such as Uripi, Ndinokuda Iwe, Unofona Back and Ndisiye Ndakadaro lamenting the ill-fortunes in love while Wild Fire, D-Sharp, African Girl are social commentaries and Ishe Anesu brings her spiritual touch to life.
