The Soul of East Africa with Seby Ntege & Band on this A World in London!
This Friday October 18th is the opening date for the new season of SOAS Concerts and Seby Ntege with his mighty multi-cult London band are ready to Rock The Campus! Seby’s superb debut album, Five Notes’, which came out last year, took the group on a star-studded journey as they toured from WOMAD to Seby’s hometown at the source of The Nile in Uganda. There’s a multitude of everything with Seby; his gifts and honesty as a songwriter, his prowess with six or more African folkloric instruments, and his dreamcoat palette of musical colours to paint from. This time round on AWIL, now that I was over the excitement & rarity of even having a Ugandan artist in the studio, I was able to sit back and fully appreciate what a phenomenal and versatile vocalist he actually is. Ultra-skilled, soulful, and bearing the most delicious tones. When you marry up Seby’s vocals with Diana Lwanga’s gorgeous and gilted voice an awesome magic happens, enhanced by dexterous drummer Lucas Keen and Ben Avison on guitar, who do full justice to the multiplex of African rhythms and nuances. Together, Seby Ntege & band are an award-deserving team with a family vibe that gels them in harmony. The material they cover ranges from upbeat dance numbers like Maria Swahili to the poignant tribute song Memories, penned by Seby for his mother who sadly passed away three years ago in October. In this interview, Seby talks about writing from the heart and ‘speaking to everyone’. He does. A new album beckons but meanwhile see Seby Ntege & band in concert at Brunei Gallery SOAS London on Friday and prepare to be moved!!
