Namibia: Tonetic Introduces Album Tonight

Windhoek — The group, Tonetic, return to Acoustic Friday tonight at the Franco-Namibia Cultureal Cnetre (FNCC)'s Terrace.

This is exactly two years after featuring at its first edition in February 2011, Namibian singer/songwriter Steffen List aka TONETiC, returns to FNCC's Acoustic Friday Concert to present his long awaited debut album, Tones of Red. The show starts at eight O'clock and tickets are N$30 each in advance and N$40 each at the doors. Strongly influenced by the intricacies of his country's endless landscapes, powerful primal energies and its diverse people, TONETiC writes songs with a sensitive edge tracing emotional complexities, intensities of togetherness and separation, and the ever-questioning trials of man and animal. "I draw from very deep and personal, sometimes evocative moods and emotions when I write and compose", says Steffen List. "My music is not meant to induce sadness - I find peace and solace through musical expression and hope that my music has a comparable effect on others."

Classically trained as cellist in his youth, latin and rock bassist in his late teens and self-taught guitarist in his late twenties, TONETiC manifested solidly end of 2010 and gave his first public concert at the FNCC's Acoustic Friday in February 2011.

He has since had numerous concerts and represented Namibia at festivals locally and in Malawi. He recently received the award for Best Original Music Score for the short film 100 BUCKS at the 2012 Namibian Theatre and Film Awards. He performs live with bassist Afron Nyambali, Pianist Ghyss McCurley and various drummers.
