Lighthouse Theatre Promotions is in a crusade to promote Clap & Tap music.
The local company will on April 28th bring the roof down with their latest event featuring groups from Botswana and South Africa.
The event will be held at Botho University. Event organiser, Mashamba Mashamba explains that his company has undertaken the mammoth task to promote this sort of worship music. The idea, he says, is to pair church and community choirs from Botswana with South African ones so that they can exchange ideas and grow the music.
“We want to grow this music, and grow its following,” he says, adding that they wish to eliminate instances where lovers of this music are forced to travel to South Africa if they wish to enjoy a show. “We are also hoping that local choirs will learn from their South African brothers and sisters,” he says.
Acts to look forward to include Isaac and the Mighty Messengers, Hophehile Church Choir and Motheo wa Emmanuel all from South Africa. Local groups include Maatla a Gospel, and Soul Redeemers. Last year, the company held three shows. Tickets are on sale for P150 and P200 for VIP.
