ABSOLUT VODKA PRESENTS NAPALMA
Venue: Warehouse Theatre
Napalma is the musical inspiration born out of a fusion between Brazilian and African culture and music. Created in 2004 during the carnival in Vitoria, Brazil, Napalma has been touring and performing around different continents over the last 13 years.
Windhoek is part of Napalma’s Africa Tour to launch their brand-new album “A Big Funky Family – Vol. 1”. Napalma’s funky sound is the result of powerful electronic dance grooves, percussion and rhythms from Brazil, mixed with a riveting performance and inspiring vocals in Portuguese, English and Shangaan – melting their cultural heritage into an unforgettable concert.
TONDI: A BOOK LAUNCH AND SOLO EXHIBITION BY GERDIS STADTHERR
Venue: StArt @ The Wolfshack
Specifically using circular canvases to create this body of work, Stadtherr has worked on paintings that explore abstract shapes that relate to her immediate environment. Stadtherr has had a number of solo exhibitions during her career and this exhibition also marks the launch of a comprehensive catalogue that covers a large portion of her career.
‘Tondi’ refers to the Renaissance term used to describe works of art with a round or circular composition. Drawing a lot of inspiration from her garden and the natural environment, Stadtherr’s choice of a circular composition reflects the cyclical nature of the environment around her.
ELEMOTHO – KALAHARI INVOCATIONS
Venue: Warehouse Theatre
Elemotho and his band “Modern Nomads” will invoke the spirit of the ancestors with his melodies and rhythms before hitting the road for his international tour to HIFA (Zimbabwe), WOMAD (Spain), Afro-Pingsten (Switzerland) and many other stops. The show is aptly called Kalahari Invocations as the UK award nominee dwells into his history to bring you glimpses of the traditional Setswana sounds which influence his music.
OLMECA SOUL TRAIN
Venue: WHK Station – Secret Bush Location – WHK Station – Club Vibe Afterparty, Bahnhof Street
We have a venue. We have a dance floor. There will be mind altering amazing music. The event will surpass the events that have come before in both atmosphere and scope. You get to the venue and then the venue will take you further…literally!
Soul Music Industry and Olmeca are going on the road – the railroad. This is no midnight train to Georgia, this is the Olmeca Soul Train! Everyone gets on at the Windhoek Central Train Station. The Olmeca Soul Train will take you straight to a secret location where the rest of the party will take place off the train. Off or on the train, both venues come equipped with a dance floor and a bar for a smooth transition between venues.
