An All-girls band Krazy Colours are set to embrace the big stage when they take part in two major arts festivals; the Music and Sand festival and Blantyre Arts festivals set for this month and next month respectively.
Band leader for Krazy Colours, Cynthia Britt Phiri told The Nation that this is a confirmation that the band is here to stay.
“We will use this opportunity to show the world that we mean business. The girls in the band are all excited and geared up to do their best and we will not disappoint. Girls can do anything that they set their minds to. And for us, our minds are into music,” said Phiri.
Phiri said since they started as an all-girls band they have never had such opportunities to perform at big events like these one saying now they have come of age.
Said Phiri: “We look at these two events, Blantyre Arts Festival and Sound and Light concert as big. They will introduce us to the world and Malawians will appreciate the talent that is in us. We will not disappoint.”
She said the band which is yet to release its own album, will perform some of its own tracks from their upcoming album. They will also perform some folksongs Napolo, Pamudzi pano, Mkazi wachingoni among others.
“We will also play three reggae tunes, four afro-jazz songs and a rock song” she added.
As Krazy Colours, we feel special and unique to be an ll-girls band performing at such big events. We are so proud of ourselves and we ask Malawians to support us,” said Phiri.
The Krazy Colours band is comprised of Caroline Fatchi a pianist, Cynthia Britt Phiri, lead guitarist, Christine Msuseni, a bassist, Felistus Phiri, lead vocalist and Kester Kunje a drummer. n
