Thank you and your band for a wonderful performance at Zimfest Live 2017, the audience thoroughly enjoyed the music and the dances. Planning and booking your band was hustle free as the communication was excellent. We would definitely book you again.

Tsungai performed with such zeal, enthusiasm and passion. The show that she delivered on that night was way above our expectation and extra value.
