Zambia: Uncle Rex, Ras Willie Head to Ndola

MULTI-SKILLED music stars, Uncle Rex and Ras Willie are set to rock Ndola on New Year's eve with some rich afro-beats, reminiscence of the olden days.

Afro-jazz lovers are assured of a night to remember when Rex Mukubonda, aka Uncle Rex and William Mbewe, whose stage name is Ras Willie, storm The Garage Extension.

The award-winning duo of Uncle Rex, Ras Willie and the band will be the main attractions at the New Year's Eve Fireworks party, which has been organised by Circles Mobile Disco.

Popular Radio disc jockey, Chishala Chitoshi jnr, popular known as Gesh Groove slamming music from the 1980s and 1990s.

Uncle Rex, the smooth-playing guitarist, will give the Ndola patrons the jazz rhythm beat as Ras Willie adds flavour to the occasion with some rich highly culturally educative collections of music.

Finger Speech and his latest album, Just Me are among several productions from Uncle Rex, who is a multi-winner of the Ngoma awards while ZAMI award-winning percussionist, Ras Willie, who one time was a curtain-raiser for the British group UB40's show, has the kind of music that is inspired by the mystics of Mwata Kazembe, the ruler of the Lunda in Luapula Province, and the Mutomboko dance.

Tickets for the show are selling at Chabanga Lodge and The Garage at K100,000.
