BLU Lamp is com­ing back again.

In­ter­na­tional cul­tur­ally em­bed­ded melodies fused with world mu­sic and dance will be the or­der of the day at The Place in Manzini as melodic group Blu Lamp is com­ing back to Eswa­tini to per­form for the third time.

Blu Lamp is an in­ter­na­tional band from Lim­popo cur­rently based in Nel­spruit.

They are a three piece afro jazz band; they per­formed at Mh­lam­bany­atsi Yebo Mzala Yebo Gogo fes­ti­val, The place and at the MTN Bush­fire Fes­ti­val 2017, where they per­formed along­side the coun­try’s very own Bholoja.

Worth not­ing is that this time around, the band will be fea­tur­ing Sanele Sime­lane a Swazi per­cus­sion­ist, who will be fea­tured in a cou­ple of songs with the band.

Their sound is de­rived from the strong pedi tra­di­tional rhythms and dance. They have also played with other great mu­si­cians such as Sipho ‘Hot­stix’ Mabuse, Joe Nina, Princess Indlovukazi and Zama Jobe to name a few.

Danc­ing

Sanele Sime­lane said Eswa­tini fans should pre­pare their danc­ing shoes for this show.

“My re­la­tion­ship with Blu Lamp is stronger each day, we are like fam­ily now, we are broth­ers be­yond mu­sic; peo­ple should come ex­pe­ri­ence that,” said per­cus­sion­ist.

Sime­lane said that the show will be­gin at 7pm but gates open at 4pm. Mu­sic lovers are ex­pected to pay E80 at the gate.
