The legendary Sipho Hotstix Mabuse is making his maiden appearance at Botswana Craft to kick off Spring in style as the Mascom Live Sessions return on August 25th.
This is one show strictly for those familiar with music by the legends and should not be attended by greenhorns. That is unless, the audience in question would be attending the show to go and watch local artist, A.T.I setting the stage on fire and performing material from his latest album Envelop that has hits such as Khiri Khiring Khorong.
The energetic A.T.I born Atsasaone Molemogi is making a return to the Mascom Live Sessions events having previously shared the stage with the likes of Bongo Maffin when they reunited on stage on May 2014. A release states that Sipho Mabuse has been working in the music industry for decades and created hits like Jive Soweto, Shikisa and Burn Out, all of which still remain household hits.
He is one of Africa’s living legends in the music industry and Botswana Craft is honoured to host him as he headlines the 37th Mascom Live Sessions event. The shows have been running since 2011 and have featured top musical talent from across the globe. Artists who have already serenaded Batswana include Ringo Madlingozi, Afro Jazz Trio (made up of Kearoma Rantao, Shanti Lo, and Nnunu), Micasa, Zahara, Hugh Masekela, Freshly Ground, Salif Keita, as well as Andy Narell. The event is meant to provide a bigger platform for local artists alongside their international counterparts. Sponsors and partners of the Mascom Live Sessions include Travelodge, The Voice, Duma FM, the Gazette, Savanna, MI5 and Mascom.
