Milege Afro Jazz Band repaints jazz scene
Over the weekend at Serena, I attended the annual Jazz Concert by Milege Afro Jazz Band dubbed ‘Repainting Uganda”. This year’s show themed “Essence of Color” was focused on women in Karamoja. The tour took Milege through Kotido, Nakapiripirit and Moroto and Cathy Namwany, the chosen female artiste, will benefit from Milege’s Artist Education Initiative. A great reason to party with poetry, music, dance, fashion and crafts.
This picture made it to the 1st page of The Observer on Monday September 3rd 2012. Now that’s a big deal here. The paper has been in existence for over seven years but no story or picture from the entertainment scene has ever appeared or led in the newspaper.
Francis Manana, the band’s lead guitarist. Guitar skills and great voice.
Christina Akugizibwe = Uganda has got talent.
Herbert Kinobe graced the stage with the Kora. He has performed in Europe, USA, Canada and beyond alongside Youssou N’dour, Oliver Mutukudzi, Angelique Kidjo and many others
