The Noisettes were the highlight of our HIFA 2013 experience and they lived to their billing with many insisting they should have closed the festival. fronted by Zimbabwean Shingai Shoniwa, The UK based Noisettes left gave a performance from the top shelf. She also called other zimbabwe divas Chiwoniso Maraire, Hope Masike and Tariro NeGitare onto the stage to do a cover of Thomas Mapfumos song. Shingai was on a mission to make her show unforgettable as she climbed high onto supporting structures, cart wheeled on stage and eventually got onto the shoulders of a man and walked through the crowd. She seemed to feel very much at home and the crowd really appreciated it her efforts.
