Meet Jenn Basa

Jenn Basa, singer, songwriter and fashion design guru, her creativity goes beyond putting words together to tell stories of her life to drafting, tailoring and finally owning up the designs of her own outfits. She is the voice behind a song called “Nabivaako” that features on Cajon Music House’ Compilation Album “My House, Your House”.
We recently met at a cozy hangout place at the top of Muyenga Hill, in Kampala a city Suburb.
We shared a bit about music and the fashion business before she went up on stage to sing.

The event was dubbed “An Evening With Independent Artists, organized by Alifchief.
It is upon this poster that i discovered she was fully an independent artist despite being a part of a musician collective cajon music house. Yes i have always thought she was signed to a music label because to me her vocal abilities suggested signed.

Cutting the long story short, Jenn Basa took us through a cold evening with her warm, calm and deep lyrics accompanied by Collin Sserunjogi the ultimate guitarist and a bit of her life stories, the turn up was at full house and from the sounds you could feel the intimacy in the interactions.
Most of Basa’ songs tackle the love life, insecurities, heart breaks and makeups, thus suggest upholding the greatest commandment like the scriptures say.

Afrie “MULALA” my favorite song

Growing up in the division Makindye , most of the fun happened at Didi’ world, from an organized drive of bumper cars to the octopus, then the creepy Pilot ship.

The train was always boring for a person that used to play with the real rail at Nsambya on his way to Sunday school directly opposite UCB.

The pilot ship in particular gave me a feeling, the one in which your stomach goes up to replace your head and then back down, I always imagined if it went loose.

I would probably be thrown at the top of kizungu hill if not Kansanga kiwempe trading center since i always sat at the right extreme end.

The octopus could try to pour you out and then save you after a few second, yet one guy Freddie Fedzo was never afraid of that crab look like sea food monster.

The guy at the bumper cars gave us bonus for being organized, he didn’t know we were a Christian group of singers and dancers with a name soul winners, i guess he wasn’t church going.

All the memories of didi’s world came back at first glance of this video, i love this song so much that I see myself in it then disappear in complete suspense according to it’s visual concept.

A message to the diaspora-Bronson Mwanje

Hello there, it’s been a minute right? well i figured i could get back to writing and update you on what’s been in the making of music at my house, i haven’t been able to put together an album or E.P but i managed to record this sweet song live in studio all courtesy of Cajon Music House and since we are all in a fight against covid 19, i thought i could send this message out to those in the diaspora to remind them that we still hold them dear even underlockdown.

The song is Titled; Butiribiri which translates to english as “tight” credit to Mr Collin Serunjogi on the guitar and Mr Paul aka Mcm Evo / Pauls Photography on the camera and Bantu Recording Studio Makindye.

More is coming up this year so stay glued.

StoneFest music, art, & tech festival 2018 joins Jinja Adventure Week

After only one edition, StoneFest has already proven to be an attraction for both local and international crowds, thanks in part to its diverse lineup. StoneFest derives its name from the word “Jinja” itself–meaning “stone”–making joining the week-long series of Jinja events and activities that is Jinja Adventure Week a suitable and exciting next step.

The festival, presented by The Creative Tribe, is “a 3-day event to celebrate music, art, and technology in Jinja”. Just as last year, it will be happening in a transformed urban space in the heart of Jinja Town. The first StoneFest saw close to 800 attendees, with over 20 countries represented including Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, United States, Germany, Netherlands, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, and more. This year, the organizers are expecting attendance to double with an even more diverse representation from throughout East Africa

As part of Jinja Adventure Week, StoneFest will run Thursday to Saturday, with the bulk of its activities occurring from evening to late night. The organic feel of the festival, the exceptional local talent that it presents, and the excellence in its production has left last year’s attendees counting the days till the next edition and set it on track to become a force within the East African festival community.
