With the economy open after two years of lockdown, event organizers are coming up with every concept they can think of to entertain the public from theatre, cinema, comedy and music events.
Ugandans have lately been taken on a ride of several concerts but not one like the Afro Jazz concert that will be held in Jinja at the source of the Nile.
The first edition of the Afro Jazz will take place on the backdrop of the prestigious River Nile at the Sailing club, fully decked with pomp and class where guests will be treated to a sumptuous array of carefully curated fusions of Afro-Pop & Jazz, going back in time but with a touch of the new school vibe.
The event is scheduled to happen on the November 12, 2022 and will be an evening rich in African Culture, and golden warmth featuring songstresses and vocalists such as Naava Grey, Kenneth Mugabi, Irene Ntale, Azawi, Andy Bumuntu from Rwanda, John Black all backed up by the D Maestroz Band.
“Jazz music has always been a preserve for less adventurous spaces, something to only be enjoyed behind closed doors by people with a foreign taste. However, the music palate for most affluent Ugandans has evolved and their sense of adventure along with it. Birthing the need for a jazz experience tailor-made for their progressive tastes,” said Douglas Atukunda, the event coordinator.
The show is a celebration of the Rich Culture and traditions of the Basoga with the aim of bringing many people close and uniting them through music towards the development of their motherland.
