Oftentimes when artists leave for foreign tours there is pomp and fun around the tour but very little of that experience is brought back home for the locals to see, experience and enjoy. Such feedback is very essential not only for the artist but to inspire a generation of other creatives and help improve the arts industry.

Celebrated neo-soul artist PrayerSoul who is back from a major European whirlwind is set to premiere a documentary that tracks his tour experience. The gifted storyteller, singer, and songwriter who tells authentic African stories through soul music is one of the best packaged international export from Zimbabwe.
On his 2019 tour, Prayersoul performed in Germany, Norway, Italy, Austria, Belgium, England and Scotland on solo projects and managed to cast his net wider on a global scale. The sojourn is captured in a 22-minute documentary showing a diverse range of performances and behind the scenes moments and more importantly, gives a true reflection of the challenges and what it takes to achieve as a touring artist.
The motion story produced by his management Anthouse Productions and SOULution Music was directed by Belgian based Ugandan international filmmaker A.K Simba of Tadoba Pictures who will also attend the screening.
In most scenarios the interaction between the audience and the artist is often from the stage but the film captures personal moments of the tour preparations and gives backstage snapshots of what goes into the making of a world-class performer living his African dream.
In addition to the premiere, Prayersoul promises to deliver a memorable concert which has been his signature every time he goes on stage delivering a flawless, intimate and moving performance.
The event dubbed The PrayerSoul Experience will be held on the 1st of November 2019 at Alliance Francicaise 328 Herbert Chitepo Avenue in Harare. Performing with a full band on the day, the artist has hinted that he will pull three surprise collaborations on the day something that will definitely add magic to the jam-packed evening.
