Posted by African Press International on July 7, 2013

Energetic, talented young Zimbabweans musicians overflowing with natural talent embolden with infectious rhythms enjoyable by all age groups was an attraction of the day on the 29th day of June in Harstad at the Arts Festival of North Norway 2013..

Interview with one of the lead men of the band:

The Band Members:

Mokoomba, the Afro-pop comets, were the last to perform at the week-long Festival, doing it festively in a concert that moved the audience in Harstad‘s Nordic Hall!

Combining modern and traditional instruments and encompassing the diverse cultures of the southern regions of Africa, Mokoomba created a unique universe of sound. The young artists are at the forefront of, and trend setters for, new African music.

In record time, the band has skyrocketed to the status of Afro-fusion’s most renowned group. On their impressive tour schedule for summer 2013, we find places such as Liverpool, Morocco, the Roskilde festivalAlgiers, Nürnberg – and yes, Harstad!
After Harstad-Norway, the group say they are heading to Africa and are planning to perfom in Kenya’s capital Nairobi, before the end of this summer of 2013. - Mokoomba Band members from Zimbabwe at the Arts Festival of North Norway 2013 – Mokoomba Band members from Zimbabwe at the Arts Festival of North Norway 2013
