Doing what I love. Loving what I do.

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. 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.
