South African songstress for Blankets and Wine

South African Afro-Jazz artiste, Thandiswa Mazwai will headline the 24th edition of the Blankets and Wine Concert sponsored by KCB Advantage banking, due to be held on April 3, at Mamba Village-Leisure garden in Karen-Nairobi.
Other artistes slated to perform alongside the South African songstress include local based afro-fusion stars, Lulu, Harry Kimani, and the energetic Makadem.
Curated by Muthoni Ndonga, “The Drummer Queen”, Blankets & Wine is East Africa’s premier music experience designed to showcase outstanding musicians in the emerging genres of afro-based music. Every first Sunday of the month the event features three or four outstanding afro-music bands that range from afro soul, afro-fusion, afro-jazz, ethnic, and other genres.

The bank has taken up full sponsorship of the 2011 Blankets & Wine series at a total cost of Kshs 4.5 million.

This includes this year’s inaugural event featuring Thandiswa Mazwai, the 5th June sophomore event featuring either LIRA or Zamajobe as the star artistes, the 4th of September event featuring either Oliver Mtukudzi from Zimbwabwe or ASA from Nigeria, and finally the show stopper of the series featuring the indefatigable Hugh Masekela slated for either 27th November or 18th December.
