On May 5, I attended a concert that sparked a vibrant BRAVO in me and inspired me to write my first blog article. I wanted to make sure this brilliant concert gets a review, unlike almost all the concerts given by people who are not in “mainstream” music. I will make sure people hear about it. This is the concert of Kevin Mbugua, alias Kevzta!
I did not know who Kevzta was. I heard about him through my friend Jon Eeg-Henriksen, who plays percussions in his band, and who had warmly invited me to this concert. I went there without expectation, not knowing the artist, having never heard his music. I went as an act of friendship.
When I arrived at Nordic Black Theatre (Caféteatret), I first saw the beautiful appearance of the stage. Everything was spotless and was done so that one could easily understand that the artist about to give this concert took his business seriously.
Over the passing seconds, I saw the room filling up, the crowd flowing. From this I knew the artist already had a lot of fans who preferred to come and listen to him instead of enjoying the sunny day by going on a trip to a cabin or elsewhere. No, Kevzta was their priority. It said a lot.
The event posting on social networking sites stated the concert began at 19:00. I was there on time, but at 20:15, there was still nothing happening. I started to get impatient. But when the two young women who “warmed up” the crowd finally delivered their songs, they made me want to stay.
I was right, because from the first moment Kevzta took the stage, I knew something good would happen, that the evening would not be wasted. Kevzta started on the hubcaps and immediately transported his audience into the air. He gave his concert from heaven.
Throughout the concert, I was wondering if Kevzta had written his beautiful songs, and the answer is yes. Did he create such beautiful arrangements? Also yes! He has a beautiful voice, with a fineness in his voice and a mastery of notes. He is a talented singer who not once misplaced a note.
Kevzta is not only an excellent songwriter, arranger and singer, he is also a great dancer. Each song was accompanied by movements to express each emotion. He also has full control of the stage and is in perfect harmony with his team.
Kevta impresses. He surprises. It is not possible to guess an end. It is not possible to know where he leads us, but we follow him willingly because we know we’re in heaven and we are happy. And when the concert ends, we don’t want to leave the clouds. The audience looks at each other, impressed.
Yes, “utlendinger” (foreigners) in Norway got talent. The applause doesn’t end. And hearts and lips say in unison: “Kevzta, BRAVO!”
