Danny Kaya entertains Limpo’s

CHALI MULENGA, Livingstone
AFTER playing host to the  Zambian Breweries – sponsored Mosi Day of Thunder last week which attracted close to 7,000 fans, Livingstone came alive again last Friday when it welcomed Danny Kaya and his Mo Fire Band at Limpo’s Pub and Grill.
Danny may have slowed in his releases, but he remains a big draw on the road, attracting fans to his live shows, and that was the case when he took to the stage last Friday.
Backed by The More Fire Band, Danny delivered an exceptional performance to the expectations of the patrons, and it was a show never to miss as the crowd sang along with him.
It was evident that revellers of Livingstone, who had braved the cold to attend the show, had missed the man who came to fame with Masiku Onse. This was his first performance in Livingstone, a popular destination for many local musicians including the No Parking Band, who have set up base in the tourist capital.
The music scene may currently be dominated by the likes of Macky II, Jay Rox, Chef 187, Afunika, Slap D, but in Danny, you are assured of a serious performer. Together with the Mo Fire Band, you are assured of some stage act.
And KELVIN KACHINGWE writes that visiting Limon Dance Company of the United States of America, together with local groups, Africa Directions and Street Culture Zambia, last Friday entertained Lusaka residents at the Government Complex Theatre Hall.
Lemon Dance Company were in the country at the invitation of the American Embassy, and the free show last Friday followed dance workshops that they held at the Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) in Lusaka.
The highly acclaimed group, which has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since 1946, has been in the country since May 2, and was expected to leave last Wednesday.
The US Embassy had partnered with leading cultural, community-based organisation, and educational institutions to create unique opportunities for exchange and engagement through dance demonstrations, discussions and workshops, and the free public performance. Participants shared ideas and best practices while building a network of colleagues from around the world.
This is all part of DanceMotion USA, a United States Department of State performing arts programme showcasing the finest contemporary American dance abroad while facilitating cultural exchange.
