Janzi Band changing the shape of band music in Uganda

The shape of music performances in Uganda has been steadily changing; changing for good. And along the way, a good number of performing cover bands have been hatched.

Most of these bands were popularized by the ‘Last Band Standing’ competition that has since folded and sunk into oblivion. Among the hordes, one band, know as Janzi Band, seems to stand out.

Founded by James Sewakiryanga and Abraham Ssekasi in 2009, Janzi Band is an extremely talented Afro-fusion and contemporary music band that also dips its fingers in world music bowel.
