Mystic Acoustic

by Nita Pallet

Words.

Notes.

Rhythm.

Fire.

The painter, The speakers, The dancers, The music.

The particular individuals pictured across this page are some of the artists that have inspired a certain group of young musicians: the Savannah Afros.

The Savannah Afros, who are Tapiwa Munyayi, Nyasha Chirau and Tee Stunt invited a number of other artists to perform in a variety of genres alongside them. These guest artists – with soul-displaying, vivacious performances – made the entire evening a memorable and unique experience. This performance was put together by the Savannah Afros in order to try and bring the audience into the minds of their different members. The different pieces played by each member of the band showed the individual parts that Savannah Afros is comprised of and all the themes they work with. According to Nayasha, a member of the Savannah Afros, the performance included elements that inspired them when working on their latest album.

The group will launch their latest album on the 25th of September this year.
