"Nieuw jaar, nieuwe ontdekking. De flamboyante zangeres Shishani Vranckx excelleert in krachtige songs van afro-europese oorsprong. Met Shishani & The Afro Namibian Tales verrijkt ze het obligate singer/ songwriter genre via avontuurlijke harmonieën en experimentele instrumentele bezetting. Die eeuwige gitaar krijgt nu gezelschap van cello, kora, mbira en percussie. Belofte voor 2016."

Nights in Nairobi: Loving the Local

Shishani teamed up with musicians in Nairobi and gave a show at Thursday Nite Live @ Choices. A place where all live music lovers meet. A truly international crowd gathered to see the show - intimate yet powerful. "Ndapandula", a song of praise, was the highlight of the night with the band improvising along and the crowd clapping and joining in on the chants.  Love was in the air.
