The group’s manager Marcus Gora told The Standard Style that all was in place for the tour, which will also see the group performing in Canada.

Yesterday Mokoomba gave a vintage act at a farewell gig that was held at New Ambassador Hotel’s Roof Top.

“The band is excited to go on this tour and share Zimbabwe’s music and culture in North America,” Gora said.

“Preparations are going well and we have a farewell concert at New Ambassador Hotel this Saturday [yesterday] alongside Brian Kadengu.”

The Africa Now concert running under the theme, Celebrating the Best of the Contemporary African Music Scene will see the Victoria Falls outfit sharing the stage with Niger’s Guitar Virtuoso Bombino, upcoming Ghanaian Afro-soul singer Jojo Abot, Nubian Pop and Sudanese retro singer/songwriter Alsarah and the Nubatones.

After the concert, Mokoomba will hold more shows in Cambridge, Portsmouth, Washington DC and at the Savannah Music Festival in the US. The group will also perform in Quebec and Montreal in Canada.

The trip is their second visit to North America since 2014, meant to present a taste of their vibrant fused African sound, along with brand new material in advance of their upcoming album, Luyando.

Armed with their carefully composed music, Mokoomba has proven its worth, presenting stellar performances in over 40 countries they have toured.

Their unique music supersedes understanding of lyrics as they have managed to wow their fans in the country, as recently evidenced by the performance at the Mi Casa, Home Sweet Home gig a fortnight ago.

Mokoomba recorded their debut album Kweseka-Drifting Ahead in 2009. It contained the hit single Messe Messe which was produced in collaboration with Dutch DJ Gregor Salto as part of the Stand UP anti-poverty campaign funded by Africa Unsigned.

The group wraps up their North America Spring Show on April 8.
