MAISHA (article first published : 2008-07-8)

Luna Lounge in Kloof is to host Maisha on July 12.

Maisha which means “Life” in Swahili is a new five-piece band that plays easy listening, soulful and meaningful music from the heart of Africa. The songs reflect the life and times of modern Africa, with messages of hope, peace and love for all.

The heart of the band comes from Tresor Riziky a newly acquired talent to South Africa who hails from the Congo and who provides the backbone, lyrics and sweet voice of Maisha.

Tresor is fluent in Swahili, French and English and sings songs in all three languages, making this particular brand of music accessible to almost any part of the world and, particularly Africa. Tresor is a self-taught singer, guitarist and songwriter who from a young age has been playing his own music in and around Congo. Recently he moved to South Africa and immediately started looking for people in the music industry who could help him fulfil his dream of giving his special brand of music to the world.

Tresor joined Rod Nichols (Face Studios) along with Khulekani Zondi (keyboards, backing vocals, songwriter). On drums there’s Simon (the gentleman gypsy), who provides a solid rhythm. The final members are Bongani Maduna with loads of experience and talent who plays bass, guitar and backing vocals, Trinity Silk on trumpet and Jon from the African Drum Shack on percussion.

Maisha will perform at Luna Lounge in Kloof on July 12 at 19h00. Entrance R70. More information from Debbie Alexander on 072 280 1949 or visit www.lunalounge.co.za
