Windhoek – Much-travelled Namibian singer, Elemotho, is booked to perform at The Warehouse Theatre on April 20, before jetting out to feature at some of the biggest music festivals on the globe.
The Kalahari singer and songwriter will bring his loyal fans a new production to The Warehouse Theatre gig.
“Elemotho and his band, Modern Nomads, will invoke the spirit of the ancestors with his melodies and rhythms before hitting the road for his international tour to HIFA (Zimbabwe), WOMAD (Spain), Afro-Pingsten (Switzerland) and many other stops,” said Elemotho Management, his management company.
“The show is aptly called Kalahari Invocations as the UK-award nominee delves into his history to bring you glimpses of the traditional Setswana sounds that influenced his music.”
Elemotho recently returned from the United States where he featured at the fifth International Music Festival in San Antonio, Texas.
He and fellow Namibian saxophonist Suzy Eises were among performers that took part in the 300th year celebration of the International Sister Jazz Ensemble in San Antonio.
Musicians from China, Germany, Mexico, Japan, Spain and Namibia took to the stage at the Jazz Ensemble that climaxed on February 3, 2018.
“Elemotho is just fresh from his visit to San Antonio and will soon hit the road again; something this troubadour has been doing for years in order to bridge political and geographical borders through his music and message,” said his management.
The Setswana cultural group Makgoa Ngwao, who feature on Elemotho’s latest album Beautiful World, will make an appearance at the “Kalahari Invocations with Elemotho” show in April.
Zimbabwean loop artist Tatenda is expected to kick off the music event at The Warehouse.
Elemotho, who sees himself as musical activist, is a well-known feature in the music festival circuit and is the only Namibian singer to perform at some of the world’s biggest music stages, such as World of Music, Arts and Dance (UK), the Rototom Festival Sunsplash Music Festival (Spain) and Bushfire in Swaziland.
