Qwela which means ‘pure’ in Rukiga- one of Uganda’s ethnic languages is the name of a very well sought after band will be one of the opening acts Blankets and Wine Kampala’s new home at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, this September powered by Tusker Malt Lager.

Qwela band is a Uganda band conceived as a love child of traditional African and Western fusion style music.

The eccentric band was started back in 2007 with a common goal of producing contemporary music that suites all music lovers’ taste. It fuses an acoustic act of Rumba, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Gospel and Afro-Soul rhythms and sounds making it a sensation in the local live music circuit.

The band is beaded with gracious Vocalists, Guitarist and Saxophonists whose goal is to carry across a message that influences positive change in the hearts of humanity across the globe and also creates a feel good kind of music.

Under the umbrella of Tusker Malt Lager, Blankets and Wine has grown in leaps and bounds with various artists from all over Africa performing at the picnic styled experience.

Alex Tusingwire, the Brand Manager Tusker Malt Lager said; “We are thrilled to be having Qwela Band at the 14th edition of Blankets and Wine Kampala. As Tusker Malt Lager, our goal is to provide an experience that gives our consumers an opportunity to discover some of the finest afro-based music acts through Blankets and Wine. Qwela Band defines the kind of setting that Blankets and Wine is all about.”

Their niche reaches a section of society that is not catered for by the current of digital, recycled music. Cut from different pieces of fabric, Qwela came to the scene with a unique blend of African music.

Commenting on their latest opportunity to perform at the 14 th edition of Blankets and Wine, Joe Kahiri, the lead singer of Qwela Band said; “We always look forward to Blankets and Wine events because it is a refreshing and a great platform to introduce our fans to our latest production.”

A quarterly, picnic style music festival, Blankets and Wine is East Africa’s premier music experience, designed to showcase outstanding musicians in the emerging genres of afro-based music.
