REVIVAL Echoes proved to be one of the country’s most promising gospel bands after putting up a flawless performance before a capacity crowd at Alliance Française last Thursday.
The group was launching its debut album Munamato Wedu — Our Prayer.
The 10-member outfit kept the audience on its feet throughout the marathon show that ended with fans asking for more.
Band leader Apostle Nyamuwomba gave an account of the three-year journey they had travelled since the band started in 2012.
Hailing from Bikita in Masvingo, Revival Echoes started making music two years ago and after enjoying rave reviews on the airwaves and perfecting their tracks, they decided to put together the tracks on album.
Each song was played with a story behind its composition, much to the amusement of the audience.
The event was graced by two legislators, Jeppy Jabhunu of Bikita South and Senator Rungani of Bikita, who all pledged uniforms, musical kits and facilitation of live performances.
“I am particularly delighted with Nyamuwomba, especially on managing to get such a talented and creative band of youth from my constituency together to make the music come alive, to be able to play it as they spread the gospel of Christ,” said Jabhunu on the side-lines of the event.
Band manager Simbarashe Mambanda said they were looking forward to more perfomances, with the next one being a joint performance with the gospel music couple Charles and Olivia Charamba in Highfield at the end of this month.
