Sinazo the self-acclaimed pioneers of Kalanga House music have released another potentially hit track entitled Kalanga Culture Lover. The track comes hot in heels after their other smash hit Kalanga Child. Kalanga Child was released in 2015 and went on to mesmerise as it reached the number one spot for five consecutive weeks on Urban Culxure, dominated Botswana radio stations and has been on the Skyz Metro Big20 since the station's inauguration. Talking to the founder and owner of Sinazo Titshabona Tish Malaba Ncube, besides promising upcoming December shows in Bulawayo and Plumtree, declared his ambitions. "I want to be the Calvin Harris of Kalanga house music".
 


While Kalanga Child was a song portraying the heralding of the birth of a baby in a Kalanga cultural setting, in Kalanga Culture Lover "I was specifically responding to the many questions people always ask me about my career pursuits. Many usually express wonder on why I am actually doing music yet I am an academic. My answer is summarised in the song. I am doing it for the love of Kalanga culture. If we don't do it ourselves, either no one will do it or someone will do it for you destroying or distorting your culture in the process".

Tish is a town planner by profession but do appear in a number of other activities like newspaper correspondence, fiction writing, music etc. Tish has a Ndebele novel entitled Igazi Labafo published two years ago. "I am not a bambazonke kind of person but I thrive towards fulfilling my dreams, being a jack of many trades and being able to be master of them too.

While they release Culture Lover, other tracks from their album Township Makokoba like Bukalanga and Ndombolo are doing well in radio stations like the Victoria Falls based commercial radio station Breeze FM. Bukalanga featuring Dj Dash was voted the trending video of the month while Ndombolo, while the track Ndombolo is also doing well there.

"The track Kalanga Culture Lover is the closest thing to defining our Kalanga house genre. The fusion of modernism and traditionalism is clear in the song." Tish says he is aware of the popularity of Sinazo music in places like Botswana but laments the lack of good genuine promoters for the shows there. "Most of the Botswana promoters who have approached us so far have been offering unacceptable contracts. We are still waiting for a good promotion then we are in for a good show", Mr Malaba confirmed.

Sinazo music is easy to get as it is available in all major online stores including Amazon, Googleplay, Itunes and others.
