AFRO-jazz musician Batsirai Shasha, pictured, proved that he is now a force to reckon with after serenading revellers at the packed Monday Jam Session at Harare’s City Sports Bar.
Shasha played tracks off his forthcoming album titled Hombarume much to the delight of revellers.
His new musical project includes Tsvarakadenga, a classical hit featuring Andy Muridzo. The album was produced by Maselo.
The dreadlocked musician recently did an acoustic version of the late Kudakwashe Musarurwa’s hit song Gogodera.
His expanding music catalogue includes Tsviyo Tsviyo — a sequel to Wapindwa Nei (2019), Nguva Yenyasha (2018) and Ndinodada Naye which received favourable airplay on local radio stations.
The sampled tracks are testimony of his tremendous improvement since he released his debut album titled Gore Reminana a year ago which featured several praise and worship songs.
Speaking after the superb performance at the City Sports Bar, Shasha attributed his phenomenal rise to rigorous practice sessions, mature lyrical compositions as well as collaborating with other artistes.
“My music has steadily penetrated the market reaching diverse audiences owing to mature lyrical compositions and well-polished stage performances.
“Jamming with other artistes at the Monday Jam Session has greatly improved my stage work.
“Hombarume has tracks that appeal to a cross-section of society hence my fans should expect nothing short of the best,” said the Wapindwa nei singer.
Riding on the popularity of Tsvarakadenga which has already garnered a massive
15 498 views on YouTube in a short space of time, The Royal Voices frontman has strengthened his brand as a performing artiste.
He has also collaborated with established artistes such as Diana “Mangwenya” Samkange on Tsviyo Tsviyo and Alexio Kawara on Ndiye Muroora among others.
He is currently shooting videos which he expects to unveil simultaneously with his forthcoming album next month.
