Zimbabwe: Fans to Have a Feel of New Album

Dendera fans will have a feel of Sulumani Chimbetu's latest album - "Syllabus" when he hosts a gig at Mega 1 Bar in Graniteside on Sunday.

The family show will also feature musician couple Selmor Mtukudzi and Tendai Manatsa. With such tracks as "Njiva," "Nhambarakishoni," "Sean Timba," "Kateteriyeni," "Young Man," and "Nesu" which are potential hits, the Dendera musician will surely enthrall his fans.

As his custom Sulu will also borrow some of his late father songs, which will go well with the old guard of Dendera music fans, while the younger generation will dance to his own compositions.

Supported by Allan, who was second in command at Orchestra Dendera Kings when Simon was still alive, Sulumani is expected to put up a polished act.

Dancer Franco Dhaka who in the last months have cut a lone figure after failing to fuse with the Dendera rhythm seems to have mastered the dances and on a good day in office he surely can mesmerise the patrons.

Whilst Sulu would make revellers sweat with dancing, Selmor and Tendai will give patrons time to enjoy soft soothing music.

The couple also appeals to mature audience as they sing yesteryear hits from their fathers Zexie Manatsa and Oliver Mtukudzi who are Zimbabwean music icons.
