So Much Soul, a four-piece strong band that plays blues with a rock edge based in Gaborone, is launching their just released debut album, “Mud Hut Diaries”, at the Alliance Fran├ºaise of Gaborone this Saturday. The musical extravaganza will be supported by friends Stampore Trio and Nitrelang Berman.
A wide range of influences inspires the songs ÔÇô from Muddy Waters to
Pearl Jam, Keith Richards to James Brown.
“The songs speak of issues we face once we leave our adolescence behind, the compromises we have to make as adults which we never thought we would have to,” said the group. “But, most of all, we have a love for live music.”
The group has quite an impressive record, including collaborations with popular Motswana folklore artist Nitrelang Berman. So Much Soul has also put on high-octane performances at the ‘Fete de la Musique’ hosted by Alliance Fran├ºaise over the last few years.
Established in Botswana in 1980, the Alliance Fran├ºaise is a worldwide network of non-profit making associations whose objective is to promote cultural and linguistic diversity.
Entrance is P60 and includes a free welcome drink. Tickets are on sale at
the Alliance Fran├ºaise and will also be available at the door on the evening.
