Salaamu wandugu! Heri ya mwaka mpya!

Sijui kama mnamufahamu, lakini Oliver Mtukudzi mwanamuziki maarufu sana kutoka Zimbabwe atakuwa na concert Jumamosi ijayo. Oliver Mtukudzi anafahamika haswa na watu wa enzi za baba yangu na watu kusini na masahariki mwa Afrika.

Ningependa kujua kama kuna watu wapendao kwenda! Details below:

Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi, now 60 years old, lands in Philadelphia this January with his band the Black Spirits for the first time as part of his seventeen-city North American tour. He will share his 2012 release Sarawoga which marks his 57th record release. He will also perform greatest hits and fan favorites from his prolific song-writing career including Hear Me Lord(Covered by Bonnie Raitt). With a deep, gusty voice, and vivacious stage energy, Tuku’s following has grown across Africa and abroad. Heralded for incorporating elements of different musical traditions across Africa, Mtukudzi’s distinctive style is known to fans as “Tuku Music.”
