Isaiah Katumwa brings a taste of Ugandan Jazz to the National Museums of Kenya, 19th Feb,2010

A Ugandan Jazz Artist Isaiah Katumwa, will be performing at the National Museums of Kenya on the 19th of  this month(Feb).

Katumwa, a saxophonist and a staunch Christian is  one of the emerging sounds from Uganda. His Kenyan performance will actually be the launch of his latest album, Another Step. His performance on Friday will incorporate Kenyan and Ugandan artists as backup singers.

His classification of Jazz is what most would term smooth jazz that has continued to receive alot of criticism from many who consider it to be more of instrumentals rather than actual Jazz.

Someone who has listened to Jonathan Butler cannot help but hear the striking resemblance in the two Christian Jazz artists although many refer to him as the Ugandan Kenny G.

Charges for the Kenyan show will be Ksh. 1,000 and Ksh. 2,000 for VIP.

There is something about the sound of a saxophone playing that seems to have a direct full access to my core and I think I can almost say, see you there.
