Friday Bash @ The Kalabar erupts with R&B, reggae and soul
The popularity of their Thursday evening Jazz shows at The Kalabar in the Hilton Hotel, has prompted Ondjila Y’Ondjaba Concert Agency to start a similar evening on Fridays for light entertainment. The pilot show launches next week Friday when singer Doris Chadre’ offers her repertoire of R&B, reggae and soul.
“Ondjila Y’Ondjaba Concert Agency, in collaboration with the Hilton Hotel is cooking up an up-tempo, high-energy, party inducing life entertainment event under the banner ‘Friday Bash @ The Kalabar’, come next week Friday, 19 June 2015. There are more to come at this popular night spot from early July 2015 onwards” OYO said in a statement announcing the start of Friday Bash.
“In some cultures, Friday is the first day of the weekend (not Saturday)! Fact remains that, come Friday 17h00, energies climb, expectations of what is to come rise, the evenings become brighter and the weight of a hard week’s work disappears. That is where the Hilton Kalabar comes in. Live musicians are selected to perform there on Fridays in accordance with their ability to create a party mood.”
