IN PICS: Sistaz Open Mic

So we were in the avenues on Saturday afternoon and it so happened that we passed by the Travel Plaza and we heard sounds.

Sweet sounds, melodious sounds – these sounds were complemented by scintillating vocals that got us to stop and listen.

As the cool grooves sunk deep in us, we were left with no choice but to investigate who was making these sounds.

We went up the stairs at the Travel Plaza and to our surprise, there were a host of sister’s up in the building having a time of their life.

The vibe was superb and the atmosphere brought back memories of the Sistaz Open Mic sessions at the Book Café – a monthly event held to give female artists regardless of age, a platform to develop their craft.

Upon observing the banners up in the space, we realized that it actually was the Sistaz Open Mic, reincarnated.

We thought it had died with the closure of the café and the challenges that plagued Pamberi Trust (Book Cafe partners) thereafter. It was good to see that the fire is still burning and there is hope for the sister’s in the arts.

One of the groups that also staf=ged a performance on the day.

Then there is always that other guy who wants to get involved in ladies business. Hats off to him, he got them all screaming in admiration.
