Last month, news about ABBA joining Twitter ahead of new music release in December started doing rounds.
The whirlwind of their worldwide success simply had to slacken its pace for ABBA in 1977.

Four smash albums, countless hit singles, international concerts and endless promotional duties were taking their toll and, with the conclusion of European and Australian tours that spring, the idea was to focus on creating the next studio project, ABBA: The Album, during the latter half of the year in a more leisurely manner.

At a recently music charity event organized by the Brass for Africa that works in partnership with local and national organizations to empower youth through music education, the M-Lisada senior band left a lasting impression to the audience. With performances of the 1970’s and 80s popular Swedish pop group festive season tracks like ‘Maama Mia,’ I had a dream, Fenando and winner takes it all , the Fun Day at Sharing hall Nsambya in Kampala left the audience nodding in approval.

The annual Fun Day Celebration hosted 19 outreach partners, 856 children and vulnerable youth, punctuated with activities such as games, a scrumptious lunch and musical performances.

Each band showcased a piece of their choice to the delight, encouragement and rapturous applause and cheering of the audience in the hall.
The finals of the BfA Solo Competition, with performances of pieces especially composed for the event, were carried out and five young musicians from more than 800 applicants received the coveted “Alan Fernie Awards.”

The awards were presented by celebrated musician Cindy Sanyu as the guest of honour.
Cindy also spoke to the children of how music gave her the resilience to transform her life from extreme poverty and hardship.
