As Cee Jay Besa prepares for the release of his new cd Ndangariro due out this May, he has also joined forces with the Zimbabwe Music Awards (ZIMA) in order to raise awareness and appreciation of Zimbabwean Music at home and away by hosting the USA leg of The ZIMA World Party.
Cee Jay, in conjuction with ZIMA's Executive Producer, Carl Josh Ncube, will stage this party in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, May 15th. The party will include appearances and participation from the cream of Zimbabwe's US-based acts such as The Mambos, Tisu Live Band, Edene, Just Lyphe, and many others.
Cee Jay himself is scheduled to perform with his live band on the night. It will also be the launch of his Ndangariro Tour which will see him live in Zimbabwe at the end of May in Harare and Bulawayo and then he will take his show to The World Cup 2010 where he is confirmed for back-to-back live shows. The tour will also take Cee Jay to Maputo, Mozambique during the World Cup period.
Cee Jay says, "I have been following the efforts of Carl Ncube and his team and have been moved by their passion for the growth of Zimbabwean music and for wanting to see artists appreciated in Zim and around the world and wanted to be a part of that because I am an ambassador of our music to the world. It's the least I could do to uplift the efforts of my fellow men coz I am also passionate about standing on the front lines of this progress we all want to see for all Zim artists."
