His local fans, according to publicist, Shepherd Mutamba should not despair: “Despite performing in Dubai, Samanyanga (Mtukudzi) will return just in time for Xmas to do a couple of shows in Harare, Gweru and Chinhoyi and spends Xmas actually on the road for a date with the fans he loves in South Africa.”
His last performance for December, on New Year’s eve, is actually in Johannesburg (Blues Room) after doing Bloemfontein, East London and Durban.
Annually Tuku spends time, towards the end of December, with his friends at Humana People to People in Shamva for a good solo jam. It’s traditional – he loves it there and never misses Shamva every December.
December also sees Tuku with friends at the Harare Shut Down show featuring Alick Macheso, Tongai Moyo and Suluman Chimbetu.
Then there is the annual but entirely re-branded and even much more exciting Pakare Paye Spar Solo Festival also in December at Pakare Paye Arts Centre in Norton near Harare. We are soon unveiling the performing artists and the generous supporting partners.
