A wide range of music genres in one night to conclude the year!
Night Under the Stars (NUTS), a music development programme by the Goethe-Institut Namibia, will on Friday 29 November 2019 end the year on a high-note with the lineup of Adora, ML, Kay Sax and Dj Mdu. The concert will be hosted by Ashwyn Mberi and the door opens at 19h00. Entrance is free!
“This year has been unique as any other but in particular, we during May hosted the first remote concert in Tsumeb that included Dj Mdu. That was a great success and it will be a pleasure to see Mdu and the other musicians on the NUTS stage next week,” said Goethe-Namibia Cultural Programmes Coordinator Michelle A.
Namases. She explained, performers for the NUTS Finale 2019 are diverse and unique, and will without a doubt showcase it on Friday – a week before its usual slot.
“Throughout the year we had fantastic performers showcase their talent and next Friday we get to witness some of them on one stage.”
New to the NUTS stage is energetic and spontaneous Adora, who is known in the local music scene for appearances at the annual Jazz Festival and development projects with scholars.
“Music and the human voice are beautiful tools that I think can be used for character development, motivation and the preservation of cultural heritage amongst the youth of Namibia,” she said.
Adora said the public cannot miss the NUTS Finale 2019 because the results are bound to surprise the
“I have done voices and music for commercial purposes but putting a group of musicians on one stage can only be magical,” she said.
Contributing to that anticipated magic will be Kay Sax and his unique style of combing the sound of the woodwind instrument with electronic beats. “My style is unique and like no other because my instrument was assembled by myself. I did
not want a standard brass sax so I painted it myself. A sax is not always about the instrument but more about the person playing it. The way in which I wave my skills is different. You must come and feel my energy,” said Kay Sax.
Complementing all musicians will be Dj Mdu’s burning drum skills. Gracing the stage again with authentic lyrics and traditional beats will be ML.
“2019 has been quite a year for me and appearing on the NUTS stage during August was one of many milestones that I appreciate. I strongly believe music is a versatile tool that could also contribute to Namibia’s economic development,” said
She is working on her third album, which will no doubt surpass the popularity of her previous work.
A DJ will open and close the concert. The public is invited to witness another memorable session of Night Under the Stars hosted by the vibrant Ashwyn Mberi.
Entrance is FREE and includes one serving of a summer punch, while food and drinks will also be available.
