SWEDISH based traditional musician, author and cultural ambassador Makandire Luckson Chezhira Chikutu a.k.a Manluckerz will tomorrow present his book “Flashback Identity” at the Africa Cultural Festival to be held at Huddinge Gymnasium Aula, Sweden.
The musician was invited for the festival following a successfully launch of the book that documents his life history while encompassing tales of some of the greatest musicians to come from Zimbabwe he met during his career, among them the late Dr Oliver Mtukudzi, The Bhundu Boys, the late Andy Brown, Dr Thomas Mapfumo and the late Leonard Dembo.
“Flashback Identity” also describes the music business and how music and dance have influenced humanity through the ages.
ManLuckerz said he was honoured to be part of the event that celebrates the multifaceted character of Sweden’s African Diaspora.
“It feels great to be invited to such an event. This spreads my book to a wider audience,” he said.
“The event goes along with my principles which include spreading Zimbabwean culture everywhere I go.”
Africa Cultural Festival will recognise Africans in Sweden, who are engaged in exceptional humanitarian and other efforts in Africa.
This will be done through the award of Certificates of Acknowledgement (by a jury) to deserving individuals.
The event will also showcase Africa’s cultural diversity through cultural music performances
