Isaiah Katumwa, Siphokazi And Manu Dibango Thrill Jazz Lovers In A Hugh Masekela Tribute Concert

If anyone ever wondered what you get when you line up three of Africa’s most accomplished artistes on one stage, the short answer is- pure magic - was delivered in emphatic style at the Serena hotel on Monday evening during annual Isiah Katumwa's concert.


The show that fittingly coincided with the International Jazz Day was a sale out.


The concert served jazz lovers in Uganda the first-hand treat of Africa’s jazz royalty in the form of two internationally acclaimed guest performers; Cameroonian star, Manu Dibango and Afro-soul songstress, Siphokazi,


who joined the legendary Isaiah Katumwa for a live performance many will remember for a long time.


This year's concert had been themed as a tribute to the departed South African jazz maestro, Hugh Masekela, who passed on in January this year. It was therefore fitting that a living legend, Manu Dibango was selected as the guest performer to headline the event.


Manu Dibango was selected as the guest performer to headline the event.


  Katumwa delivered more than half a dozen of his outstanding jazz tunes that earned the genre acceptance in Uganda’s music mainstream.


Katumwa`s performance sandwiched the electric vibes provided by the South African Siphokazi’s Afro-soul mixes, setting the stage for the man of the evening – Manu Dibango, who did not disappoint in any way.
