IYASA release Afrika Live videos

HIGH-FLYING arts company Inkululeko Yabatsha School of Arts (Iyasa) has released two videos from their latest studio album, Afrika Alive.
The album, their eighth offering, was recorded and produced at House of Rising Sound by Joe Maseko and Toisen Marirangombe in Bulawayo.
It was produced by Nkululeko Dube and was mastered at Doing Studios in Austria by Ben Kellner. It has 18 tracks sung in Ndebele, English and German and a bit of Czech.
Afrika Alive, was released internationally in August last year and since then the arts company has been working on producing videos for some of the popular songs.
Both videos are now available on the popular video-sharing website, YouTube.
In an interview with NewZimbabwe.com from his base in Austria, Nkululeko Dube, the director of the arts company, said it was a no brainer for them to choose to do videos for the songs S’jaiva Sibancane and Yini Ndaba.
“It’s the contrast that is interesting. The fact that one is a dance song and the other is a sober more serious theme song means a lot. The two videos give everyone a choice.
“Most people know IYASA for dance and that they will find in S’jaiva Sibancane but then in Yini Ndaba we explore the acting talent that we also develop,” said Dube.
S’jaiva Sibancane, an up-tempo and feel good song, will surely appeal to the old and young generations as it reminds them of the games and songs they used to sing during their childhood days.
