The Bayimba International Festival of the Arts returns to the National Theatre Kampala Uganda for its annual go-round in the 8th Edition on September 18-20, 2015, albeit from much smaller form to bigger event. Gone is the idling, along with many of the after shows, which will now be concentrated at the theatre. But even scaled-back, #BAYIMBA2015 offers amply big thrills.
The beauty about this year’s is that it will have various live music bands from the East African region.
The #BAYIMBA2015 is undoubtedly Uganda’s number one festival – physically, by offering exciting artistic experiences to all audiences; artistically, by presenting Uganda’s finest artists and upcoming talents from across the country; demographically, by engaging as many Ugandans as possible, thus making the Bayimba International Festival their own; and organizationally, by being led by a team of committed, passionate and experienced Ugandans.
What to expect:
On Friday 18th Sept.
At the opening of the festival, the audience in a standing ovation will be thrown into heebie-jeebies of Maddox Ssemanda Sematimba Namagembe and Nakatude lyrics. After his exhilarating return to the stage in 2014, This Ugandan reggae musician who sings in Luganda will take the stage on day one (Friday 18) as the opening act.
On Sunday 20th Sept.
Naava Grey, a multi-talented Ugandan singer, lyricist and performer passionately will lay within genres such as Ganda folklore, rock and RnB creating a neo afro-pop vibe and very distinctive sound to the splendid audience.
As usual, don’t forget the breathtaking poignant performance from Mozey Radio and Weasel. The duo will be putting their best of it at the festival.
Just listen to their music and be classy, be in the mood of this year’s festival.
Come and feel the naturalness and true sounds of the guitar from live bands from across the region.
