Elemotho Concert: “The new sound of Kalahari” (Namibia)

On Saturday, August 5 at 7:00 p.m., we will have contemporary African music brought from Namibia by Elemotho in the Jardin de l’Albarda.

Elemotho will play the acoustic guitar and sing in his mother tongue setswana, English and other Namibian languages. From the rural boy to the modern lyricist of today, Elemotho will transport us through his commercial sounds by his particular vision of the music: “I grew up with the narration around the fire”.

Elemotho will delight us with his old and new sounds and with his powerful spirit will embark us on a journey: “that musically invokes the spirit of the Kalahari.”
