THE diverse networking platform Catch-A-Vibe (CAV) set revelers at the new joint in town, “Café What”, in a groovy mood last Saturday when various artistes converged to showcase their talent.
CAV is a monthly platform where artistes who play various kinds of music meet to share and help each other grow musically.
This initiative promotes laid-back or adult contemporary music such as old school, hip pop, lounge, jazz, afro jazz, and instrumental, among other soft genres.
The platform also helps artistes to listen and appreciate other music genres and allow networking for possible music collaborations.
CAV presents a unique thrill of a party that is not exactly noise pollution but rather a soothing touch of melodies rich with life messages.
In an interview with the Weekender, co-founder, Sehlabaka Rampeta, said the platform presented nothing else but a space to party and have some fun.
They created this platform after realising a gap in the Maseru music sector.
“The local entertainment culture tends to have similar patterns, where they play a certain type of music but neglecting other genres. We have created a space that intermarries all the genres, especially in cases where we can have the artists who play such genres well,” Rampeta said.
Since CAV’s previous two gigs held at the Green Gate in Khubetsoana and Backyard @Lynors in Moshoeshoe 2, the laid-back gigs continue to gain momentum, making them one of the anticipated parties in town because they cater for a different kind of music lovers.
“If you remember, our last party was advertised only a week prior to the date but the turnout was encouraging. Our next party is a date not to be stood up. It will feature nothing but good music. We will have on board local artistes including DJs Talis, Da-star, Macs On theDecks, Stylus 88, The A supreme, and the talented Nkoanyane Pitso,” Rampeta said.
