Kabo Leburu and Citie at Millennium tonight

Citie Seetso, a well-refined bassist from Gaborone, and Kabo Leburu, a young guitarist from Peleng, are on a mission to dish out good music through live performances around the country.

They made their first stop at Eros Jazz Bar in Tlokweng last weekend where they both gave brilliant performances.
Today, Sunday (1st February 2009), they take their music to the Millennium Jazz Restaurant in Mogoditshane. The show kicks off at 5P.M. and entrance is P30.

Citie is Botswana’s king of the bass guitar who burst into fame soon after finishing his Bachelor of Music degree in 2002. He released his first album, Initiation, in 2006 and got nominated for the first BOMU awards that were held in 2006.┬á

He staged a number of international shows, especially in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana where he shared the stage with the likes of Oliver Mtukudzi, Vusi Khumalo and Hugh Masekela.

In the local circuit, he has consistently staged good shows and got brilliant reviews for his unique bass playing style and his well-produced album.

Leburu is slowly making his way into the live scene after releasing his afro-jazz/world debut album, titled Footsteps, late last year. A good number of jazz patrons will remember him as the prime tunesmith of the now defunct Dance Afrika band. His touch of jazz, classically inspired finger picking based on indigenous rhythms gives this album a unique ground breaking sound. You can’t resist kicking off your shoes when this young guitarist takes to the stage.
