Re Batswana Music Ensemble Tour

By on September 30, 2016

Re Batswana Music Ensemble visit Hotel Hellsten for an exclusive live performance during their tour “50th Anniversary Independence Celebration Tour 2016,” which celebrates Botswana’s 50 years as an independent nation. The ensemble offers a colorful showcase of traditional folk Afro Jazz and modern music from Botswana. The leader of the ensemble is Lister Boleseng, Nnunu Ramogotsi, Ndingo Johwa and Lekofi Sejeso.

The concert will take the audience on a musical journey that begins in ancient Tswana and continues through traditional Acapella before it culminates in modern compositions with culturally inspired rhythms and expressions.

The idea for the exchange tour was born in 2011 when the producer Soares Katumbela saw a need and a value to promote local musicians abroad. Last year performed the band an estimated tour in Sweden and Switzerland, and now makes the band a new tour through China, Germany and Sweden.

At Hotel Hellsten performes the ensemble in the intimate Hellsten Earth Bar, which is decorated with photographs, art and antiques from Asia and Africa.

Hellsten Earth Bar is open Mon-Sat 17-23 and Sun 17-22, food served until one hour before closing
The concert starts at. 17:00, Sunday, October 2
Free entrance
