To Top



When musical talent from a different breed, foundation and influences decide to blend, one can only expect nothing less of a niche sound. This is exactly what CitiBlend brought to table in their marriage with the Undercover Brothers at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel last Friday. These two bands treated revellers to their finest compositions.
As Solomon A-Sharp pinched the keys with finesse, a bubbly sound from Caesar Kajura’s saxophone reverberated through the air with the oldie Easy, by the Commodores. A jazzy romance played with Three Times A Lady, equally doing justice to the love week with Someone Loves You Honey. Julie Ssesanga, who is riding for a comeback to the music scene, lent her astounding vocal strength to the band, right before Undercover took stage.
While they performed, guests dined and wined, in the comfort of a chilly atmosphere, cuisine aroma and fresh sound.
Energy filled the stage as CitiBlend stitched authentic African sound to Undercover Brother’s tracks; Sikatira, Ntaawa, Munyenye, Kilalu and Nabirye. These lyrical ballads were thrust with their rich tone of voice, the saxophone fusing effortlessly with the fiddle and pipe, mingling African drums played by Ronnie.
“I am excited about performing with them and perhaps this musical marriage might yield into a track together,” said Kajura with jovial cheer.
Despite Matthew Ngorima’s departure, the Zimbabwean l who earlier played thumb piano and guitar for CitiBlend, the band impeccably maintained that Southern-East African swish even in renditions with Undercover. Lawrence Matovu, did justice as the basist along with Godfrey on percussionist.
Popular songs, Northern Bypass, Ggaba Beach and Night Patrol, off CitiBlend’s Self Discovery album were played to impress. They are actually looking to feature a different act every last Friday of their monthly show at the Sheraton.
