Za­gro Dee­jays fundraise for new al­bum

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

HOUSE mu­sic group, Za­gro Dee­jays, are set to in­vade Tey­ateya­neng-based lodge, Ka Pit­seng, on Satur­day as part of their coun­try­wide fundrais­ing tour.

Made up of three disc spin­ners, DJ Sk­izo, DJ Khe­bza and DJ Al­le­gro, Za­gro Dee­jays was formed by the lat­ter two in 2004 while they were still in high school.

Ac­cord­ing to DJ Khe­bza, they have al­ready per­formed in a num­ber of dis­tricts, with the in­ten­tion of tour­ing the whole coun­try. He said the tour was meant to raise funds for the pro­duc­tion for their al­bum which is in the works.

“We are cur­rently on tour to raise funds for our up­com­ing al­bum. We have al­ready rocked such places as Pi­o­neer Mall, 4Fordy, as well as Ma­put­soe and Mo­hale’s Hoek dis­tricts,” said DJ Khe­bza.

“Za­gro Dee­jays will soon per­form in Roma, Quthing, Qacha’s Nek and Tey­ateya­neng be­fore month-end so that we can start pre­par­ing for the re­lease of the al­bum.”

He said their per­for­mances were also meant to give fans a glimpse of what to ex­pect from the al­bum, in ad­di­tion to the live mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We have in­cor­po­rated the Bongo drum in our per­for­mances and also have artists that are fea­tured on the al­bum singing live,” DJ Khe­bza said.

“The live per­for­mances have been well re­ceived by our fans who usu­ally don’t get the chance to watch House mu­sic be­ing played live.”

He added that they had set their sights be­yond Le­sotho borders, and would soon per­form in South Africa af­ter the al­bum’s re­lease.

“We are al­ready en­gaged in talks with a pro­moter from South Africa with re­gards to a tour. We also want to fea­ture a South African vo­cal­ist on one of the tracks, but I can­not re­veal his iden­tity as ne­go­ti­a­tions are still on­go­ing,” said DJ Khe­bza.

Za­gro Dee­jays has al­ready re­leased the banger Your Star, fea­tur­ing Sig Na­ture and Linkeng, which they say is the first sin­gle to the al­bum. It has re­ceived gen­er­ous air­play on lo­cal ra­dio sta­tions and raised ex­pecta

tions for the al­bum’s re­lease.
