Sunday gig for jazz lovers

0

MASERU — Jazz enthusiasts come together at the Mediterranee’ Restaurant in Maseru on Sunday for a unique mini-festival that promises guests a completely different experience. 
The event, which kicks off midday , is being organised by three jazz lovers — David Ndini, Makoa Lipholo and Malefane Malope — under the name Quiet Storm.
According to Malope, the show offers jazz fans the opportunity to bring their own collections and have them played in a “friendly and relaxed environment, among colleagues who also appreciate what jazz music is all about”.  
The show will be divided into three sessions, with Quiet Storm setting the ball rolling followed by members of the public and invited DJs from local and South African radio stations. 
“We have invited surprise jazz collectors from PC FM, Radio Lesotho, Lesedi FM and OFM, who will be playing in the final session,” Malope said.
In addition to CDs, there will also be DVD presentations, with Malope telling the Lesotho Times the purpose of the function is to “promote the spirit of jazz music, while trying to revive jazz clubs, which used to exist in Lesotho”.
“The purpose of this kind of function is to bring real jazz music to the people,” he said.
“We are also asking jazz lovers to bring up their collections and form clubs, which used to be the case in this country not so long ago.”
He said people should expect a thrilling and enjoyable show come Sunday.
“This is a show, which all jazz lovers would not want to miss. If you are a genuine jazz fan, this is the show for you.”
Malope said the weekend event is a prelude to an international jazz concert set to feature South African and American artistes, early next year.
“We are preparing for a bigger concert towards Easter next year — one of the biggest shows ever held in Lesotho,” Malope said, adding preparations to bring the unnamed musicians are at an advanced stage.
