Jolly while seething with rage. Enygma is a complex walking contradiction. Often delightful and modest but conceited and obnoxious enough to talk of himself in the third person. ENYGMA is an enigma. This dude performs with a facemask, which has kept his identity away from the public. That is how he chooses it to be. His fascination with thug poetry and rap began in primary school. And he is fast becoming one of Kampala's beloved rappers. At this point in his music career, Enygma does not have to struggle to prove anything. He is already getting there, with an endless array of classic beats that rekindle memories of MC Hammer, Tupac Shakur and the like, blurring the lines between rap's underground affinities and modern hip-hop. His album, Enygma of the State, sounds like a conflicting tug-of-war between the Ugandan MCs he features, with him lyrically dominating the whole album as the rest clean up the remains. Although the 16-track album features renowned rappers like Navio, The Mith, Young Nick and Keko, he topples them with his unique lyrics. Hustler's Night, the fifth song on the album, is a better demonstration of Enygma as a younger sibling surpassing the renowned MCs, his older siblings. This gives the album a triumphant and celebratory touch. Corporate Flow featuring Jay Kay and Young Nick is consistent with old school hip-hop beats, commending and praising a corporate in a tie going to the studio after work because he has passion for music. Could he be talking about himself? Well, he is an enigma this one. The other tracks tackle some really serious topics. See the World is an impressive glimpse into urban homicide, other deaths and disasters. Smile of a Child fails to sound out because of a contrived chorus, thanks to Naava, who does it. However, Demise, still featuring Jay Kay, makes a difference with the modern day moving beats of the west coast as it questions MCs for unnecessarily flaunting their fabricated possessions to the innocent listener. Ultimately, Enygma of the State is a very noble attempt at unity, but its variation stalls the project, resulting it into a recording that buckles under the weight of its own pressure. But he won't lose because he has got catchy punchlines any hip-hop fan as keen as I am, will tug onto in appreciating the real MC Enygma is.
From the heart of Africa comes the novel sound of a rich panache of music. Tamba brings an atypical feel to a cultural genre suffused with a sundry of folklore sounds from across her homeland, Uganda. Born Sara Mutamba in Kano, Nigeria, Tamba was raised in Uganda where, at a tender age and with her mother’s encouragement and grandmother’s folk influence, she nurtured her affection for singing. She sung occasionally in church with two of her younger brothers and in the year 2000, along with them, formed the acclaimed gospel a capella group ‘SALT’. In it’s four-year lifespan, the soulful group performed in churches, at weddings and corporate events. A Bachelor of Arts graduate from Makerere University and majoring in English literature, Tamba took a break from music and moved to World Vision in Geneva Switzerland, where she took up an internship. She later joined the Global Fund, also in Geneva. She then returned to Uganda and worked for a couple of corporate companies while following her musical dream, a pursuit that seemed frustrating at the time. She again halted her music in 2005 and only resumed singing in 2007, performing at weddings and corporate functions. In 2008 she joined afro-jazz-pop band Qwela as a vocalist and songwriter until 2010 when she begun to cultivate her own forte. In 2011 Tamba launched her solo career and is currently working on her debut album. Fondly described by her fans as ‘the small girl with the big voice’, Tamba is a rare gem. Her passion for African sounds has persuaded her music and songwriting into a wealthy blend of authentic African artistry.
