Double shot of musical bliss for Jazz Safari

For quite a while, we have known the Jazz Safari to be an annual event but it looks like things will be changing.

Starting this year, it will be a double shot of musical bliss as two separate events are lined up for the 11th edition of the show; the Johnnie Walker Jazz Safari which will take place on June 30, followed by the Johnnie Walker Soul Safari in December.

“Uganda’s premiere jazz offering this year is about doubling the fun for jazz lovers, which is why we are doing two separate festivals,” said Jazz Safari founder TShaka Mayanja.

“With Bona performing you can be sure it will be absolutely riveting.” If the thought of humming along to a Grammy Award winner’s jazz ballads over the radio is enthralling, American jazz bassist Richard Bona will be performing live at the Speke Resort Munyonyo.

With more than 10 albums and a world tour under his belt, Bona brings a rich heritage of jazz music that puts him up there with the best in the business.

Once described by the Los Angeles Times as “an artist with Jaco Pastorious’s virtuosity, George Benson’s vocal fluidity, Joao Gilberto’s sense of song and harmony, all mixed up with African culture,” the 50-year-old has it all.

Joining the American star on the same stage will be the cream of local jazz music, including Kaz Kasozi, BlackRoots UNLIMITED featuring TShaka Mayanja, Michael Kitanda, Tony Trumpet and Aloysious Migadde.
