They were meant to wrap-up the show, but they store the limelight at Sand Festival at the weekend.
They say the show is not over until Lucky Stars perform.
And they showed just why with a performance befitting their legendary status.The beauty of music is that it transcends all barriers; race, age, religion and cultures. And nowhere was it more evident that on the Sunday night at Livingstonia Beach in the final hours of the festival.
Lucky Stars, who were unscheduled performers on Sunday night, defied the notion that their music is age specific.
The acoustic group performed at the urban music segment before a largely youthful and partisan crowd of about 1 000 revellers.
The irony was that most of the revellers that danced to Chinafuna M’bale like their very life depended on it were born was after the song was certified gold.
The largely youthful audience should have been more at home dancing to Gwamba, Third Eye, Sonye and Barry One before Lucky Stars’ set.
But that is the beauty of music. These are the moments for which music is made.
The rousing encore that they received after performed Chinafuna M’bale showed just how much they are appreciated. n
