Uganda’s Jazz and saxophone maestro Isaiah Katumwa could not have celebrated his 20 years in the music industry any better.  He put up an electric performance that left revelers yearning for more at his Jazz Concert.

The concert kicked off with a brief performance from Talanta group, mentored by the man of the evening Isaiah Katumwa, to warm up the audience that was still settling in at the Serena Victoria hall and also welcome Katumwa onto the stage.

When Isaiah stepped on stage, the audience went wild with cheers. Clad in a yellow shirt and black pants with a saxophone anchored in his hands, he proceeded to serenade the audience with his music.

Mid his performance, he invited his 12-year-old son Mitchel Katumwa onto the stage that wowed the revelers with his mastery of the piano, receiving a well-deserved applause from the audience after his act.

Hugh Masekela joined Isaiah Katumwa as he performed “Maama Africa”, and the two went on to thrill the audience. Masekela is not just good with his trumpet but a very good performer too. He effortlessly got the crowd onto their feet and dancing to his tunes. His African-flavoured songs like “She Got”, “Khawuleza”, “Mandela” and “Coal Train” had everyone revved up.

When Isaiah finally stepped off stage, the crowd that was visibly still having a great time could not believe the show had finally come to an end as portrayed in their reluctance to leave their seats.

The concert that ended at 11:00pm, sponsored by Airtel, Pepsi, and others, was crowned with a cake cutting.

Here are some photos from the concert:
