Bosman charms Maseru
RENOWNED South African jazz sensation Gloria Bosman left her audience begging for more on Thursday evening after her show at AVANI Maseru.
Although people had to wait for a long time before she finally started her set, it was worth the wait as she had her audience screaming and ululating throughout her performance.
Organisers said the delay was caused by the fact that she, along with her band, took too long to fine tune their sound.
She however, apologised for the delay and promised to compensate her audience with a flawless set; which she did.
“I am sorry I had to keep you waiting for this long but we had to ensure that everything was in order for the performance to be superb,” Bosman said.
“I am not good at speeches but I believe the performance tonight will soften your hearts and you will forgive me. We are going to have a wonderful night.”
Although most of her songs were in Zulu, the audience appeared comfortable with every track. Even though the event had a semi-formal setting, with people in smart casual outfits, the mood was ultimately festive.
The patrons were seated enjoying their drinks Bosman blessed them with her melodic lines.
The event was held as part of the series of the 2018 edition of the annual Lesotho Tourism Festival (LETOFE).
The organiser Montoeli ‘Moleli had told the Xpress People’s sister publication, the Weekender, that the event was tailored for revellers who preferred indoor jazz shows.
“The Gloria Bosman event caters for those who would love to enjoy jazz while seated in a relaxed environment. It is a semi-formal show where people are expected to dress up in a smart way,” ‘Moleli said.
Other sessions of LETOFE 2018 which followed were A Night with the Legends which was held at ‘Manthabiseng Convention Centre grounds and the Sounds of Blue which was the main event and was held at Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village yesterday.
From this afternoon, the LETOFE Wrap Up will kick-off at the ‘Manthabiseng Convention Centre Grounds. Tortured Soul and DJ Supernova both from America as well as Flameboy Universe from eSwatini, South African rapper K.O and DJs Milkshake, Vigilante and Dimples will rock the stage. The local contingent will boast the likes of Veenushka, Agent K, Da Starr, Zagro DJs, Tedoz, NINE24, Hoasy, Mekonko, Ezra, Pablodj, L-Tore and Juvy.
