Uganda's Jazz maestro, Isaiah Katumwa announced his 2018 annual concert at Kampala Serena Hotel on Wednesday.
While addressing the media, Isaiah revealed that this year's concert will be a tribute to the fallen South African Jazz legend, Hugh Masekela who passed away at the start of the year.
He said, "Owing to the great inspiration, friendship and mark Hugh left in the world of jazz, I want to celebrate the life of my friend, Hugh Masekela."
"At this year's concert, I will be hosting Manu Dibango a global icon of African Jazz, I think this is the right time to bring an artist of his stature as we celebrate and remember Hugh Masekela," Isaiah added.
"Manu is best known for having developed a unique music style fusing jazz, funk and traditional Cameroonian music. He has over 70 albums which he started recording as far back as 1968. The concert will also feature Siphokazi, a famous South African vocalist best known for her versatile groovy, soulful poignant lyrics and Afro-chic style," Isaiah Katumwa concluded.
The concert is proudly powered by NTV, Serena Hotels and UBL's Johnnie Walker that injected over 250M as said by Annette Nakiyagga, the head of Whisky Portfolio at UBL.
