Muringa Festival on tomorrow


THE inaugural Muringa Music Festival roars into life tomorrow at Bamboo Gardens in Mabelreign, Harare, with star-studded list of performers — including Mafriq, Roki, Gary Tight, Pauline Gundidza, Sebede, Brown Sugar, Tererai, Zoey and Ammara — set to bring the house down.


Running under the theme Conversations of Cultural Heritage, the show, hosted by Mafriq Music Factory, is part of the artistes’ advocacy agenda towards environmental and cultural issues.

Simbarashe Manhango, Mafriq Music Factory publicist, said the festival was a platform for artistes to articulate issues that bedevil society.

“A lot of hype has been surrounding Cecil the Lion, which is a good thing. However, we also need to focus our vision to include other areas of nature like flora and the muringa tree species that we as artistes thought of, hence the theme of this festival,” Manhango said.
