Ma/gaisa fun day ready to energize the audience

The Ma/gaisa family will bring a vibrant celebration of the genre with the upcoming Ma/gaisa Fun Day and Live Music Festival, taking place on June 1 at Moses Van der Byl Primary School.

Headlined by Mervin Claasen, known by his stage name MarvTown, the festival aims to highlight and celebrate Ma/gaisa’s unique musical style.

Claasen, the first winner of the Next Ma/gaisa Star Search Show, has taken the initiative to not only perform, but also create a platform that encourages and expands the reach of this unique musical style.

“We are delighted to bring the Ma/gaisa Live Music Festival to the community. “This event is a celebration of our culture and music, and we hope it inspires artists and fans alike to embrace and promote the genre,” she said.

In addition to musical performances, the festival will feature activities for the whole family, making it a perfect outing for all ages. Patrons can expect a day filled with entertainment, food and a sense of camaraderie.

“We, Ma/gaisa artists, wish to create more platforms for the genre to thrive and influence music beyond our borders. We wish our unique sound to go international and for Ma/gaisa artists to gain more recognition within and outside Namibia.

The selected group of artists are talented, hard-working and disciplined artists who will not only represent the Ma/gaisa genre, but all of Namibia,” he said.

Ma/gaisa Family Fun Day is a collaborative effort between MarvTown and artist Jaliza Staffny Gomxos.

“This is also a fundraising effort for me, Jaliza and Kalux as we intend to travel to the UK where we were invited to perform at the Heroes Day commemoration in August this year,” he said.
