Man of many talents, playwriter, director, actor Jacques Mushaandja will grace the stage this Friday as he performs at the Acoustic Friday Concert at the FNNC Terrace.

Since his successful live music debut on World Music Day earlier this year, Jacques Mushaandja has been on the move. He has directed stage plays such as ‘The Forgotten Children’ which was shown at the National Theatre last week and this week he shows us yet another side to him as he is set to perform at the Acoustic Friday Concert.
Mushaandja is a unique singer of African chants and rhythms and delivers a fusion of Shambo, Soul and traditional chants, amongst others. Interested in depicting his identity as an African man his music looks into ancestral heritage and history as well as the current African socio-political condition. His sound is accompanied by legendary story telling, exuberant costumes and traditional dances. He has been dubbed as Namibia’s very own Femi Kuti and could be Namibia’s next Jackson Kaujeua.
On stage he gently commands attention. He incorporates his cultural rituals to gain more stage wisdom and energy from his ancestors, in fact his whole performance is a ritual.
The twenty four year old artist holds a Bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts from the University of Namibia. He works as a freelance actor, writer and director for theatre. The Acoustic Friday Concert Stage at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre has been graced by the likes of Shishani, Erna Chimu and RUN N.A.M.S.
So if you are a fan of the theatre maestro, be sure to find yourself at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre. The show starts at 20:00. Tickets are available at the FNNC for N$30 in advance and N$40 at the door.
