With a 100% local line-up, Staywell Hotels proved that local artists can still deliver without a foreign headlining act in the mix. During a music festival called Friends of Staywell held at Staywell Gardens at Rasesa, revellers had a good time as they appreciated their own.

Popular duo, Ancestral Rituals set the tone for the night with their organic and Afrocentric arrangements. People immediately gathered around the stage when the duo started performing music mostly without vocals. The duo which is made up of a DJ and a drummer gave the audience an ethnic beat which reverberated around the place.

The drummer thumped the drums as revellers screamed in delight while the DJ booth’s selection took the drums to new heights. Perhaps it is not surprising that Ancestral Rituals are sometimes compared to South Africa’s Black Motion for their intoxicating stage presence. Among a plethora of artists who have graced the stage after Ancestral Rituals was Casper The DJ and he didn’t disappoint especially after the bar was set high. During Casper The DJ’s set Botswana’s very own DJ Ngwazi joined as he performed his hit collabo with SA’s Master KG titled uthando.
