As part of the Fête de la Musique (World Music Day) celebration, the French NGO Voices Without Borders (Voix Sans Frontères – VSF) together with Children of Peace Uganda and Alliance Française Kampala are organising a children’s concert slated for this evening(June 14) at the French School. In honor of the youth, Eddy Kenzo will grace the stage with the Ghetto Kids to close the night. The event will also feature a performance from Giovanni Kiyingi Kremer.

Voices Without Borders (VSF) and Children of Peace Uganda is a project focused on using music as a tool of repair and resilience for the children and adolescent escapees in the Bidi-Bidi camp-Uganda and former LRA abductees in northern Uganda’s district of Lira.

Singing is a way of enabling the youth to find joy and the energy to surmount the trauma and shock of exile and displacement. VSF believes in the power of the song to repair and enhance resilience. Song liberates the person to find what is essential, to feel that one inhabits the body despite the wounds and traumas. To learn to breathe for song is to exist in a different way. Song can be the process to self-repair and resilience.

As Boris Cyrulnik said, ‘resilience is a means for the body to resist pressure, and regain the former self. This is both physical and psychological. Psychologically, resilience is the capacity to live and succeed despite adversity.’

VSF seeks to establish a practice of choir song thereby enabling the youth to find joy and the energy to surmount the trauma and shock of exile and displacement.

Eddy Kenzo has been invited to this concert in recognition of his use of music as a tool to uplift the ghetto children in Uganda.

The Rwandan duo of Charly Na Nina have had reasonable success in the music industry,most of which they have to thank Uganda for.

I mean,they have made some great music with Ugandan artists like Geo Steady who worked with them on “Owooma.” ,Bebe Cool who featured them on his jam,”I do” among others .They have also worked with Ugandan producers and won hearts of the Ugandan music audience.

It seems Charlotte  Rulinda and Fatuma Muhoozi  have fallen in love with Uganda,plan to get married to the banana Republic and set up home here, which also makes sense since they have heard a few issues back home after recently parting ways with their manager.

The two have reportedly been living in Makindye, Kampala for the better part of this year and  are working on more music in Uganda.

Former Blu 3 member and self proclaimed dance hall queen ,Cindy Sanyu has come out to critic some areas of the current music industry saying that people who cannot sing are getting massive airplay only because their pockets are heavy.

She says it is not about talent anymore unlike back in the day where musicians had to work so hard to earn their place at the top of the music industry in Uganda.

“Unlike before, in the current music industry anyone can sing as long as they have money to pay for airplay. It’s no longer about talent. These days It’s easy to find a musician who can’t sing (live), can’t write or play any instrument but when their music is at the top. All one does is to pay for airplay,”she said.

“We had to compete against the likes of Juliana Kanyomozi, Irene Namubiru among others to earn our respect. But not anymore. Music is now about paying for airplay…not talent anymore.”
