HIFA 1-6 May

SYLENT NQO THE GUITAR MONARCH

4 May 2018

 

It threatened to rain. However nature yielded in anticipation of what this now world-renowned Zimbabwean virtuoso had in store for the Coca-Cola Green crowd. 

The magnetic pull off his guitar strings left the crowd mesmerized and showed just why he was crowned the Senior Solo Instrumental Grand Champion of the World 

 

in 2016 at WCOP in Hollywood. Sylent Nqo’ s music speaks volumes and leaves you yearning for more! Words can not express how full-bodied and mature his music is. 

He traverses from one octave to the next with such ease while weaving audio tapestry as he scats through rifts. AND hecroons to boot!. There is no demarcation as to where he ends and where the guitar begins as they are a single formidable force. His music speaks volumes and matches his larger than life personality. 

The crowd went wild as he sang Ndinomuridzira Gitare and had no option but to get down and dance. 

From then onwards, it was a full-on dance party as he played original pieces together with contemporary and Zimbabwean classic hits that sent the crowd into musical ecstasy! Good music is meant to be shared and enjoyed and that is what happened at the Coca-Cola Green thanks to Sylent Nqo ‘The King of the Guitar and friends!
