She is the only female on a star-studded line up of Uganda’s top Saxophonists assembled for tomorrow’s big Jazz concert dubbed Qwela Junction Sax Aces slated for Kampala Serena Hotel at 6:00pm.
The Qwela Junction is a quarterly musical collaborative concert by Qwela Band featuring top instrumentalists collaborating with each other. This time round, the organizers have assembled the top Saxophonists in the country for a mission to serenade fans this weekend dubbed the Sax Aces which features Joe Kahiri, Joseph Sax, Mo Roots, Micheal Kitanda, Happy Kyazze, Brian Mugenyi and veteran Moses Matovu on 30th August at Kampala Serena Hotel.
MoRoots real names Maureen Rutabingwa is a multi-talented instrumentalist singer-song who is currently Uganda’s best female saxophonist. She performs with the Qwela Band as a lead singer and Saxophonist and is a fan favorite not only because of her amazing music skills and talent but also because of her eye-catching and elaborate sense of style particularly the Mohawks that have become iconic.
MoRoots who is Marketeer by profession, is hard working and ambitious. Her colleagues describe her as a strong and focused young woman who loves music and people. She is currently working with Uganda Breweries as the Innovations manager and says she is more than ready to give fans her best come Sunday.
“I honestly find it extremely comfortable because am representing for the ladies and I wish there were more ladies. I feel very confident and am here as members to equally contribute just like the other guys. I don’t see myself as just one girl amongst many guys. We are all musicians and we all bring something very special to the table.” She told www.chano8 in an exclusive interview when asked to explain how it feels to be the only female in a male dominated field.
