Women of Jazz

From Mmegi Mobile:
Botswana's foremost women of jazz - Punah Gabasiane, Nono Siile, Nnunu Ramogotsi and Kearoma Rantao - will stage a concert at the Millennium Jazz Restaurant in Mogoditshane on Saturday. Punah said their concert will coincide with the Month of Women. The concert will culminate in a grand finale at the Botswana Marketing Craft on October 2. Punah promises that they are going to raise a storm during their concert.

The four divas, who are also going to stage shows in Francistown, organised a similar concert at Gaborone's Maitisong Hall last year.

Although they have always worked together, they will give individual shows. They might collaborate at the end of the show, however.

Punah who has released two albums, has been a leader when it comes to Afro jazz. Just this year, she scooped an award during the Presidential artists' competitions held in July. This was not the first time that she walked away with music awards. In the past, she was adjudged as the best jazz singer during the Botswana Musicians Union (BOMU) Mascom-sponsored awards.
