A heavy down pour on Sunday September 29 did nothing in an attempt disrupt Afro fusion lovers in Uganda to grace the fourth edition of Blankets and Wine at Uganda Museum grounds.
Afro fusion music lovers started to flock into the museum grounds at around 3pm and the picnic style set up stage could be seen upon arrival.
Janzi band set the revelers into afro fusion mood and by the time the headlining acts hit the stage the audience was ready and well set for them.
Janzi Band’s performance was quickly followed by Uganda’s very own rapper Navio who gave a 40 minute live performance of his hit songs backed up by Janzi Band.
With songs from his first album to recent club bangers Navio took the audience on a musical journey, performing songs like Trouble, Kata, Boss Vawo, Ngalo and Nawulila.
Burundian Afro fusion star Kidum took to the stage with his own band consisting of one drummist, a percussionist and two vocalists to compliment his incredible performance.
He thrilled revelers with songs like his famous hit ‘Haturudi Nyuma’, a song that has the ability to spark love emotion in an instant. It’s a musical marvel he has collaborated with Uganda’s Juliana to produce.
Kidum’s performance was an incredible one and by far the most interactive we have seen at previous Blankets and Wine.
Despite a heavy down pour in Kampala, Afro fusion music lovers in Uganda yesterday turned up in their numbers at the Uganda Museum grounds to experience Burundian Afro-Fusion Maestro Kidum, rapper Navio and Janzi Band in the fourth edition of Blankets and Wine.
