Dudu Manhenga, a dynamic young Zimbabwean singer/songwriter will perform in Rome on 14th April 2012 with her group ‘Color Blu’.
Her style is influenced by great African and jazz singers, and the dignity of her delivery is a credit to her and to her country, wherever she goes.
Dudu emerged as a leader on the Zimbabwean music scene after long stints as backing vocalist for several top artists including Oliver Mtukudzi & the Black Spirits, Steve Dyer, Louis Mhlanga, Tanga Wekwa Sando and Dumi Ngulube, while studying at the Zimbabwe College of Music in Harare.
Her music has been accurately described as ‘an afro jazz adventure’ - a fusion of genres: afro, contemporary, Zimbabwe traditional, township, jazz, afro, Latino, and a cultural cross-breed of Zimbabwe’s Manica, Mashona and Matabele rhythms and melodies, with energetic stage work, and sizzling vocals.
