ENTEBBE – This promises to be an exciting weekend of live music as legendary Congolese musician Awilo Longomba renowned for his brand of electrifying techno-soukous music performs at Kampala Serena Hotel on Friday April 5.
Awilo who jetted in earlier this afternoon with part of his Paris based band members, last performed in Uganda in the 1990’s. Some of his best hits like Karolina, Cache Cache and Gate Le Coin still reverberate on dance floors around the world.
The veteran musician became a star back in 1995 after he quit drumming to take up singing, and went on to release Moto Pamba, following it up with Coupe Bibamba three years later.
He also released Kafou Kafou in 2001, Mondongo (2004) and Super-Man in 2008.
Organized by Cents in partnership with Singleton, Awilo’s Friday show will also have several top Ugandan artists perform including Jackie Chandiru and gospel act Levixone among many others.
