Dance group takes shows by storm

MASERU — Good music makes everyone want to move his or her body, but when you watch Sushi4 dance to any song, you will be so hypnotised by their moves that you will simply resign to the still position of a spectator.

Sushi4 is a local female dance group that leaves crowds marvelling every time they step on stage.

One would actually be wondering how they actually do these routines, or if their bones are made of rubber.

Almost every musician now wants to have them in their music videos and stage performance.

The group comprises three members although they say they have a fourth member.

“You may see three of us on stage but we consider God to be the fourth one as everything we do is because of Him,” they told XpressPeople in an interview on Thursday.

The team is made up of Shoeshoe Letuka (founder), Nthati, Karabo and “God”.

They started dancing together in 2012 and started performing at Vodacom Lesotho’s shows through Letuka who had been doing it before as a lone dancer.

“We normally dance to House music with only the deejay playing music but recently we have started performing alongside some musicians. We have worked with the likes of Fatere.

“After we performed at the *111# Vodacom Concert, we were so happy when South African musician Professor approached us and asked us to be part of his performance there.

“This made us feel that we are actually making a mark in the entertainment industry and our talent is getting international recognition.

“It has always been our dream to perform alongside international acts every time they visit Lesotho and it looks like it is gradually becoming a reality.

According to Sushi4, dance has commendably added flavour to musical performances, making them outstanding and they are more than happy to be part of the list.

To date, they are one of a few female dance groups that are celebrated in the country.

“We are actually not dancing for any artiste on full-time basis; we are just freelancing and experimenting with different styles of dance like sbujwa, twerking and pansula.

“We would like to see the group having its own dance academy where we can groom as many ladies as possible to uplift the dance industry here in Lesotho and keep them off the streets,” they said.
