Nkomo teams up with Aussie gospel artiste for new single – Chronicle

The Chronicle

Simba Jemwa, Showbiz Reporter
The newest duo on the gospel scene, Realm Minister (born Sindiso Nkomo) and Australian gospel songstress Chloe Jones, will soon release their new single “He is Risen.”

The single will be available in September on all digital outlets with the exact release date expected to be announced soon.

The single launch will coincide with the release of a video of the song.

“He is Risen” is a battle cry that people should continue to continue to take note of Jesus’ sacrifice to save the world according to Nkomo who co-wrote the song with Jones.

“This is a song that values the work that our Lord Jesus did at the cross and how he attained victory on our behalf.

“What makes this song so special is that it is a song that l composed as it was dropped into my spirit during the Easter Redirection Day which happened to be on my birthday two years back.

“One time, we had arranged all the music for the song with my worship music producer in Zimbabwe, Carven Gumbanjera but at some point, we lost some stuff due to the computer glitch.

So, we were left with a song guide demo that we retrieved and we were able to revive everything with a classical new layout that l am so confident that this one will lead people into the presence of the Almighty,” Realm Minister told Chronicle Showbiz.

After his move to Australia, Nkomo hooked up with Jones, herself an accomplished gospel artiste.

The two re-wrote the song and have begun recording in Australia at Sawtooth Studios in Newcastle while the Zimbabwean part of the project is under the watchful eye of producer Gumbanjera at BaKella Studios.

The producer is also Minister Mahendere’s session bassist.

Nkomo said the song had already been originally arranged with an international rock groove and when he moved to Australia early this year, he met a worshipper at one of the vibrant churches in Newcastle which is called Live Free Church.

“She is one of the praise and worship team leaders, a songwriter, lead vocalist and a drummer. In fact, she is multi-talented.

It so happened that after she listened to the demo part that we still had, she loved the project and it’s been a real privilege to work with a worshipper like her.

As we speak, my producer in Zimbabwe has been doing a lot of work. Instruments and backing vocals have been already laid and now what’s left are our vocals from Australia.

“We are recording the vocals at Sawtooth Studios which is one of the biggest studios in Newcastle,” said Nkomo.

“I look forward to releasing this single and the video.

We have been working hard to rewrite the song.

“The song is in itself amazing and I am happy to be part of this project,” said Jones speaking from Australia.

Jones said she grew up in a musical family: “I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t singing or playing an instrument.

I was part of the choir throughout primary school which allowed me to be a part of so many amazing opportunities including performing at the Sydney Opera house and in the musical The Boy from Oz.”

“During this time, I first began writing my lyrics and songs and my passion for it grew.

Throughout my high school, I performed in several musicals like Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins and Strictly Ballroom where my music teacher inspired me to be my artist and press into my style.

“When I was 16, I co-wrote a song called Here as a part of LIVEfree music which was just released earlier this year.

I am excited to be a part of this new project, the music is a different style from previous things I have done but has been an amazing experience and joy to bring this song to life alongside Sindy (Sindiso Nkomo).

I cannot wait for you all to hear it,” said Jones.

‘The soundtrack to this year’s multi-cultural gem’ – Trenchtown line-up released for Electric Picnic – Offaly Live

Trenchtown is much more than a festival arena, it is a way of life! And it has just announced the amazing line-up for this year’s Electric Picnic

Reggae, Roots, Ska, Afrobeat, Hip Hop and Rocksteady lay the soundtrack to this multi-cultural gem.

The oasis in the woods is home to three stages and celebrates a melting pot of Jamaican, Irish, Caribbean and African fusion. 

By day, Trenchtown brings the sunshine, and by night it brings the heat, with a nod to Kingston’s legendary street parties, the KINGSTON 12 ARENA lights its fyah and the flames ‘bun deep into the small hours. 

Trenchtown is filled with music, art, dance and interactive performance, transporting its visitors with sights, sounds and tastes and invites them to sample a slice of Ireland’s new, emerging and evolving culture, paying homage to its roots and influences while proudly championing a completely homegrown entertainment line-up for 2022…

Ireland’s no.1 reggae ambassador CIAN FINN has blazed a musical trail from the rugged west coast of Ireland to the sun-drenched shores of Jamaica and beyond.

His 2015 debut album This Applies featured a performance alongside Max Romeo, among other reggae royalty.

Before releasing his debut solo album, Cian fronted the band Intinn, an Irish dub and dancehall collective that made a big enough impression to earn them spots on the same stages as The Wailers, The Skatalites and UB40.

This year, Cian presents his latest offering, his sophomore solo album –  ‘When We Were Young’. Ten powerful tracks journeying from the melodic to heavy hitting basslines, all best enjoyed live ‘inna da dance.

The Light Runners

THE LIGHT RUNNERS feature some of the best reggae musicians from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, Zimbabwe, Denmark and Ireland and are a rare treat with a backstory as exciting and interesting as their music.

Band members have fled dictatorships, spent years touring the world with soukous bands and even led gospel choirs. Staying true to ‘Roots Reggae’ the band are in the studio recording their debut album that preaches ‘One love, peace and harmony’ in a time of fake news, war, migration, and xenophobia, sending a message of solidarity and unity.

The Light Runners have become synonymous with hypnotic hooks and fluid vocal harmonies with a distinctly African flair, a live show not to be missed.

Veteran Dublin sound system WORRIES OUTERNATIONAL have been promoting reggae and dancehall music at home and abroad for over two decades.

The crew’s legendary club nights ‘Dancehall Styles’ and ‘Reggae Fever’ provided a focal point for the scene in the capital for many years, earning them a loyal following in the process. Six selectors make up the current line-up, each of whom bring their own style and flavour, while staying firmly rooted in the Sound System tradition.

A typical Worries session includes a crucial mix of roots, revival, digital and dancehall styles, served up with an infectious energy.

Friday nights on RTÉ 2FM are all about DJ WAX. His playlist selection bounces across the airwaves carrying the freshest Afrobeat, Dancehall, Hip Hop, RnB and prominently introduces new Irish acts among a host of global chart topping artists. 

Also performing across the weekend is Dublin’s all dayer party specialists SIM SIMMA, Dublin based original Ska band THE SKATUESQUES, broadcaster, producer and DJ STEVIE G will be joined by REA BRIZY, while Ireland’s original Rasta Soundsystem crew REVELATION SOUND will be powering up Trenchtown’s AFRIKAYA stage, joined by WORLD BASS CULTURE and many more guests…

Elsewhere in the tropical wonderland, take time to chill, kick back and feel the sand under your feet on TREASURE BEACH. Explore the art and cuisine on offer, sample blue mountain coffee from Jamaica, food from the Caribbean, and global music from all corners of our emerald Isle.

Join the interactive Dance and Drum workshops, and get ready to shake your batty to the carnival atmosphere with pop-up performances from HAPPY CITY SAMBA BAND, TOP 8 STREET DANCE CYPHER, BABYLONS INFERNO and so many, many more…
