Guitar feast at HIFA | The Financial Gazette

APART from the presence of musical legends - Senegalese icon, Ismael Lo and Zimbabwean superstar, Oliver Mtukudzi, who will lead the pack on the Telecel Main Stage on May 4, the Golden Pilsener Day, and May 6 respectively - the week-long fest will also feature other guitar impresarios straddling the classical, jazz and pop genres.

One of them will be Samuel Diz who will perform in the NMB Recital Room on May 2 and 3. Born in Tui, Spain, in 1986, multi-award winning Diz has been praised by critics as "an artist who feels the music, lives the music, breathes the music and is the music". He has performed all over the world, and is the director of the annual "Musica en el Claustro" international festival in Spain.

To complement these doyens of guitar music during the Harare International Festival of the Arts will be a wide variety of high quality offerings on other stages as well. Other accomplished guitarists to feature prominently at HIFA this year are famed local female bassist, Edith WeUtonga, Brazilian Yamandu Costa and South African, Derek Gripper.
