Jose Chameleone was the only artiste featured on our new album – Afrigo Band

Afrigo Band

Afrigo Band is undisputedly the most celebrated Ugandan band.  Having been around for 40 years, they have been a soundtrack to Uganda’s turbulent and merry making history.

Yet, even when Afrigo is celebrated by both the young and old, they have not released new music in a long time, it is thought that it has been over 20 years since they released an album and over ten years since they released a single.

This morning, while at the MTN offices at Nyonyi Gardens, the band members stunned media when they announced they have released an eleven track album that will be launched October 11 at Hotel Africana in Kampala.

Aptly titled ‘Teri Mubi’, the album features songs that have been heard before and new ones that people will experience for the first time, but even those they have heard before have been remastered.

Produced by Nairobi based Vincent Othieno, the album is ready for the sound Ugandans to listen to without forgetting what made Afrigo a name to reckon with. The sound people have grown to love is still prominent, but on this particular album, it is refined, probably because of the always improving production techniques.

According to Moses Matovu, the band leader, they have worked with Othieno for a long time and thus, saw the need to collaborate with him on this one too. The album has only one musical collaboration with Jose Chameleone who Matovu says is like a son.

The album is already available on Tidal, though it will later be availed on other platforms with physical copies to follow later.
