29 September 2017
AFRO-fusion crooner Elder Lahyi – real name Lynott Mutore – relishes his inclusion on the list of entertainers performing at the Kariba Lake Side Summer Festival tomorrow courtesy of Nyami Nyami FM.
Elder Lahyi, who is enjoying rave reviews on this radio station (Nyami Nyami FM) with songs from his current album Tsamba Mbozha, said it is an opportunity to take his music to people.
He will share the stage with a number of artistes from Mashonaland West Province at this event expected to bring activity in Kariba.
The entrance to the festival is free.
“The response to my album is encouraging. It is very good and this is another opportunity to shine.
“It feels good to perform at a festival especially to a community who has been enjoying your music on radio,” said Elder Lahyi.
Backed by the Vuvuzela Band, the Shiri Yemusango singer promised music lovers a rare treat at the Lake Harvest Habour.
“It’s our first time to grace such a big event and obviously we have been working so hard to come up with a perfect act.
“You know when you get such opportunities; you don’t need to mess up,” he said.
He described the event as a stepping stone in his musical career.
Despite his current album hitting the market about 10 months ago, Elder is already back in studio working on another album.
He said he will share details of the new album with his fans as time progresses.
He has retained popular producer Munyaradzi Viya of Vialy studios who produced Tsamba Mbozha.
Viya has produced hits for a number of top artists in the country among them Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu, Peter Moyo, Somandla Ndebele, Tocky Vibes and Killer T.
He is also a keyboardist at Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi’s Black Spirits Band.
“I am already in studio and will sample some of the songs during our performance at the festival.
“I still have a long journey to travel so I need to release more music.”
His collaboration with Eria Tembo (son to the late legend Biggie Tembo) titled Eredha is among the songs mostly requested by listeners on local radio stations.
