A New ‘Afro-Soul And Rumba Classics Session’ Introduced At The Nile Gold Jazz And Soul Safari

Ahead of the 9th edition of the popular Nile Gold Jazz and Soul Safari concert slated for Saturday the 8th of October, music lovers are in high spirits especially basing on the fact that one of world’s celebrated Reggae artistes Maxi Priest will be the top guest headliner of this Nile Gold Uganda-sponsored event now in a new venue Lugogo Cricket Oval-Kampala.

And now for the first time ever, organisers have introduced a new live session dubbed Afro-Soul and Rumba Classics. Something that crosses the mind when  the word Rumba appears anywhere is Uganda’s legendary band Afrigo, DRC’s Koffi Olomidde among many others.

This live session will be headlined by music legends like Moses Matovu of Afrigo Band, Tony Ssenkebejje and Eddy Ganja. The other most exciting thing is that they will be joined on stage by talented vocalist Lilian Mbabazi and Saxophonist Michael Kitanda.

“We needed to introduce a live music session with Ugandan artists and who better to start than The Legends who’ve been in the industry for 40 years! And still counting.”  Tshaka Mayanja the founder Nile Gold Jazz and Soul Safari told Chano8.
