Bands WERE

When? Who? WERE!

African tribal band WERE walked away with the national victory in the Imagine Zimbabwe finals June 29th, and will come to Kristiansand in August. The finals took place at the Music Crossroads Academy in Budiriro in the capital Harare, and hosted a long array of talented young musicians competing for the title. At last, however, is was the energetic five-piece orchestra WERE who could take the main price home.

“The winners topped on originality and creativity, mixing various African cultural elements in their act” Music Crossroads regional director Mathias Bangure said about the band, which was painted as traditional African Zvinyau dancers for the occasion.

We hope they will bring both the paint and the energy when they come to Norway in August!
