Namibia: VM6 to Serenade Final BW Music Circle At Nice

Namibian fans will have another opportunity to watch the popular acappella group Vocal Motion Six live in action at Nice Restaurant this Saturday.

The award-winning five-member ensemble, who staged two successful shows at Nice in the past month, including their album launch, are billed for the final event in Bank Windhoek’s Music Circle.

Zimbabwean-born Mbira Queen Onai Mutiswa, who does not need any introduction to revellers of the popular live entertainment spot in the city, will open for VM6.

Former back-up singer, Mutiswa has become a popular feature on the Namibian music scene, ever since she decided to make Namibia her second home several years ago. A former regular performer at the now defunct Warehouse Theatre, the music teacher is a Mbira player who has also proved to be very comfortable with a mic in her hand.

Vocal Motion Six caused a huge international commotion when they received the jury’s special prize for ‘Best Performance’ at the Tampere Vocal Music Festival in Finland earlier this year. They clearly proved, during their recent two performances at Nice Restaurant, that they are capable of completely flabbergasting audiences with their well-executed display of song and dance. The group unites the vocal talents of the Chizyuko brothers, Mark and Peter, with brothers Jones and Vasco and their cousin Thomas, who make up the Mario family part of the group.

Over a relatively short career span, the group received several nominations and awards, which includes nominations for the Kora Awards in 2005 and, the prestigious Best Performance’ award in Finland.

Saturday’s performance marks the final of the 2012 Bank Windhoek Festival, which will resume on Saturday, January 13 2013.

Damage for the show is N$55 and bookings can be made with Sarah at Nice Restaurant on (061) 300 710.
