AFTER the success of last year’s first EleFest, the 2016 festival line up has expanded with exciting new international acts, including Mokoomba, an acclaimed Zimbabwean Afro pop band currently touring the US.
Thus, on May 14, the herds will gather at the Lusaka Showgrounds to celebrate wildlife conservation in Zambia.
Mokoomba will share the stage with several household names of Zambian afrojazz and soul who are trumpeting their support for the conservation of Zambia’s wildlife including Maureen Lilanda, James Sakala and the Elect Band, Wezi, Heartsound, Mumba Yachi and Kapiri Mposhi 4.0.
These ele-gends of the Zambian music scene are currently working on a surprise collaboration about wonderful wildlife.
All epic talents in their own right, never before have they sung together and all the more reason for this important cause of highlighting conservation in Zambia.
A video will be shot on location in Zambia’s breathtaking wilderness of the collaborators performing their inspiring song together.
Watch out for this spine-tingler live on stage at the EleFest! As well as music, EleFest will host entertaining and informative installations about wildlife wonders and the work being done to
Festival goers can bring the kids along to the “Where the Wild Things Are” corner as well as sample the local food and drink!
