American Saxophonist Marcus Anderson and Angolan Kizomba star Yola Semedo are in the country ahead of their much anticipated performances at the 10th edition of Johnnie Walker Jazz & Soul Safari.

Jazz lovers and enthusiasts can look forward to a groovy night at the event scheduled to take place on Saturday September 2, at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, which is aptly themed “Wear your dancing shoes.”

Addressing a press conference held at the Kampala Serena Hotel on Thursday, Anderson and Semedo promised to leave their Ugandan fans and jazz lovers wanting more.

“Kizomba is party music, so come ready to party,” Semedo said while addressing journalists.

With the world renowned whisky Johnnie Walker on board as the title sponsor, UBL’s Head Whisky Portfolio, Annette Nakiyaga had this to say; “On behalf of Uganda Breweries, I formally welcome our guests to Uganda. We are very much geared up ahead of your performance on Saturday. For those who will be attending, expect nothing less than an exquisite hospitality and whisky experience synonymous with Johnnie Walker.”

Gates to the Jazz, Soul and Kizomba music celebration open at 4:00pm with Uganda’s Myko Ouma and Micheal Kitanda kicking off the evening’s performances at 7:00pm.

Meanwhile, continuing their tradition of giving back, Jazz Safari has partnered with the Rotary Club of Kampala North to start a music programme at the Kampala School for the Physically Handicapped.

Kampala School for the physically handicapped (KSPH) is a primary school that was started in 1968, catering for the educational needs of the disabled children in Uganda. The school that has an enrollment of over 100 pupils offers vocational subjects like tailoring, screen printing, craft, tie and dye and computer training to all the children that cannot continue with further education.
