The Annual World Music Festival Uganda theme “Repainting Uganda” will take place Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November 2014 and is presented by the Milege Band in partnership with the Entebbe Municipal Council and will for the first time span two days.
The fundamental purpose of this year’s theme is to promote new and fresh unconventional talent, traditional Ugandan cultural music elements and upcoming artists. For those not very familiar with Milege Afro-Jazz Band, they are a band that celebrates its Ugandan Heritage. Formed in 2009, the band comprises of six members namely: Manana Francis Birabi as the lead guitarist, Nalwebe David who plays rhythm guitar, Paul Owembabazi as the bass guitarist, Muhwezi Ariho on Keyboard, Nkalubo Peter on drums and Akugizibwe Gloria as the lead singer. Other acts scheduled to perform include: Mathias Walukaga, Odong Kara, Tamba, Joel Sebunjo, Afro Samba Band and so many more.
This year’s festival promises to be a unique celebration of talent spanning two days away from the hustle and bustle of Kampala in the serene gardens of Entebbe.
