LOCAL Afro-fusion group Band Tower is set to represent the country at Malawi’s Lake of Stars Festival to be held on September 26 and 27.
The band, which hails from Chitungwiza, will share their tantalising fusion with a Zimbabwean flavour with the international community that throngs the festival annually.
In an interview with NewsDay, Band Tower project manager Stephen Tsoroti said they are ready to share the music the audience will never forget.
“People should come braced for an evening of heart-catching synthetising Zimbabwean music, entertainment they will never forget,” said Tsoroti.
He said they want to share music that preaches real issues affecting ordinary Zimbabweans.
“We are very sure many people at the festival will relate to our music,” he said.
“We sing about issues affecting our society trying to catch up with a generation of local musicians that includes Oliver Mtukudzi, James Chimombe and Bhundu Boys who sang messages that really reflected Zimbabwe thus appealing internationally,” he said.
Tsoroti said to anyone who followed yesteryear stars, Band Tower would give them a reason to listen to local music.
Band Tower consists of musicians who have worked with celebrated local stars including Willom Tight, Busi Ncube, Andy Brown and Illanga.
As a band, they have played at different festivals and local stages including Book Café and Alliance Française.
Meanwhile, other local artistes who are to perform at the Lake of Stars Festival include Selmor Mtukudzi and Tariro neGitare.
