TALENTED guitarist and vocalist Progress Chipfumo will be the star attraction tomorrow at the Monday Night Jam Session at Mutare’s leading entertainment hub – Club Mandisa.
Chipfumo, a lead guitarist of note, is currently dominating airwaves with his plug track Dai Ndaiziva, which has proved popular within his growing legion of fans.
In an interview with Standard Style on Wednesday, Chipfumo said he had special memories about Club Mandisa.
“We are home at Club Mandisa. We are not new there and it is now one of our favourite territories. The fans there are very awesome and we are expecting to have another good night in Mutare,” he said.
The Monday Jam Sessions give a platform for musical groups in Mutare and the rest of Manicaland province to showcase their talent.
Club Mandisa director Boniface Nyamanhindi said the popular joint wanted to promote musicians in Mutare and Manicaland by providing them with the exposure that they are lacking.
“This show is special because we have managed to bring a popular artiste who is very experienced,” he said. There is no doubt that it will be a privilege to the people of Mutare to come and watch the man in action.”.
Nyamanhindi said he had noted with concern how equally talented musicians in Mutare were failing to get exposure.
“Mutare and Manicaland province have abundant musical talent, but unfortunately that talent is not being nurtured. Club Manidisa has taken upon itself to nurture and develop that talent,” he said.
“We will be hosting the Monday Night Jam Sessions with the aim of developing and at the same time promoting the artistes in Mutare.
“As a promoter, it is also my wish to see local music’s popularity growing and maintaining its dominance in the entertainment sector. We will be working closely with the music groups and musicians so that they get enough exposure.”
Nyamanhindi said they would be inviting established musicians to perform as guest artistes.
Yesterday, the popular joint hosted Zimdancehall sensation Seh Calaz.
