Treza to warm up a winter’s night with performance at upcoming Night Under the Stars
The Night Under the Stars, will be hosting a night of RnB and Neo Soul, with a performance from local musician, Treza, on 5 July at the Goethe-Institut. Tickets will be selling for N$20 and door opens at 19:00.
“I identify with RnB because the genre has been and still is very comforting,” said Treza who sings about recovering from unpleasant experiences in life and love.
Born and raised in Windhoek, Treza at the age of 12 lost her mother and was subsequently accommodated in a children’s home that she said, contrary to misconceptions, contributed to building the foundation of whom she has become.
“The housemothers went out of their way to look after and teach us the principles of respect and dedication to achieve desired goals,” she said.
Having featured on the stages of numerous events at hotels in Windhoek and in particular, Song Night, Treza said the journey she travelled to find her voice was not easy.
“My father bought me a karaoke machine when I was a little girl and that was just the beginning of a journey that made me more aware of how much I enjoy singing but how that is also challenged by anxiety when on stage. In the end, I identified talking as my coping mechanism and as much as that helps me to feel comfortable, it also has me engage with the audience better – instead of boring them – so is a win-win situation,” she said.
Treza will be accompanied by backup singer Bradley, lead guitarist Ims, drummer Fernando and Avo on the keyboard.
“I invite Namibia to a performance that aims to inspire them because life is not always easy. It is important to always be yourself and never give up on what you think makes you happy, even though a lot of life is unpredictable, you must remember that loving yourself is the beginning of a fruitful relationship with everything else,” she said.
