KAMPALA – Legendary saxophonist and Jazz artist Isiah Katumwa is arguably one of the most talented saxophone players in Uganda to date.
The maestro who has mastered the art in the saxophone over the years has organized a virtual concert in collaboration with the Uganda US embassy to mark Uganda’s Independence as well as entertain his fans.
In the concert, renowned Katumwa who is behind several successful popular music projects revealed that it will seek to make Ugandans aware of how beautiful their country is and also to entertain his fans.
Prior to this concert, Katumwa has dropped a new song dubbed “Muna Uganda” in which he heaps praises on the Pearl of Africa whilst praising her nature, climate, physical features but most notably her hospitable people.
The singing saxophonist believes that Ugandans have spent so much time and resources on politics and forgotten to praise their country’s beautiful nature and people.
‘Muna Uganda’ is written and recorded by Katumwa himself in Luganda, a local language widely spoken in Uganda today. The song was produced by Samkad.
The Virtual celebrations will also have performances in other sectors besides music including; dance, fashion, deejaying, comedy, film and many more.
