The last Night Under the Stars (NUTS) concert for 2020 by the Goethe-Institut Namibia features Taylor Jaye, DJ Castro and other special guests on Friday 20 November 2020.
“I am honoured to be part of the NUTS Finale 2020 and my fans can expect something as energetic as always but also different,” said DJ Castro. He will drop a few beats with upcoming rapper and Hip Hop artist Yeezir. “Music has been changing so many lives globally and I think we are beginning to reach that level here in Namibia with every new
artist brining their A-game to the table, which is a plus for Namibia as a whole,” said DJ Castro.
Namibia can also expect Taylor Jaye to stud the stage with her vibrant personality and some vocals in the khoekhoegowab language. Taylor Jaye is a multi-talented and award-winning Namibian-born artist based in South Africa. She is known for reaching the highs in music, winning awards for exploring the House genre, running her own media production company, producing her own music and collaborating with musicians across Africa. Taylor Jaye has also branched into acting.
“This has been one of the most challenging years for the creative industry and we hope to end this year on a high note with a spectacular concert featuring two local musicians,” said
Goethe-Institut Namibia Cultural Programmes, Michelle A. Namases.
“We have done our best to adapt our prorammes to withstand the challenges of this year and continue offering creatives in Namibia the opportunity to be part of the cultural exchange that the Goethe-Institut stands for,” she said. Namases noted that this concert will also serve as the official farewell to the Goethe-Institut Namibia Director, Daniel Stoevesandt, who will be replaced in early 2021.
NUTS has since 2014 provided many young and upcoming Namibian musicians with the opportunity to showcase their talents through a live performance. Even though backing
tracks are allowed, NUTS only permits live vocals to maintain the authenticity and organic aspect of music as a form of art. NUTS is a contribution to the development of arts and culture in Namibia.
Entrance is free, the gate opens at 18h30 and social distancing will be observed. See the Goethe-Institut Namibia.
