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.
Anthony Ssewabuga better known by the Alias Aethan, is a Ugandan record producer. He started out listening to music through which he grew a penchant for sound and production. His Brother recalls seeing him spending a considerable amount of time listening to a particular song on replay while paying attention to detail, variations and the beat with impeccable concentration which he found boring. He thought music was meant to be enjoyed, not to put one to task. It wasn’t until a friend introduced Aethan to Fruity Loops, a digital audio production workstation in which he picked interest and learnt how to make beats plus more about production. He got his professional start when his brother hooked him up with Klear Kut (Ugandan rap group) in 2007, a move that pushed him to take mainstream production into consideration. Aethan has since worked with artists such as The Mith on So UG, Fire, Big Is Me, Go Hard, and more, Navio on Ngalo, Nnawuliranga, Leka Kwenyumiriza, One and Only, Trouble and much of his catalogue, Klear Kut on Eyo Yange, Independent Woman featuring Peter Miles, Fresh featuring P-Unit from Kenya, worked with GNL on Ani Yali Amanyi, Wololo, Ruyonga on Blood Fire Smoke Vapour, Victory, Lilian Mbabazi on Get Out The Door, Flex D’Paper (with whom they run a partnership in Rapaholix Music), LugaFlow Army on The Aeth Way, AirPorTaxi on 808s & Heart breaks, Don Mc on Yes Yes among others. Aethan has become known for fusing African percussion and artistry with Western electronic and synth sounds cemented by solid drum patterns and an appetite for sampling, a style that he says is as a result of his early musical observations in the works of American production leading men like RZA, Kanye West, Just Blaze with the way they turned Motown classics into heavy hitting rap beats with a soulful fabric, more so Timberland who has continuously re-invented his sound. With such insight, Aethan has gone ahead to create his own lane and localize those ideas, tapping inspiration from the rich sound of the African beat to make music for a global audience. He is currently working on a project that he dubbed “The Aeth Way” in honour of the way he crafts his productions; Aethan produced most of his past works while at College in his hostel room, a factor that he says inspired a unique level of creativity in a setting that was on the users end.

CODE is a young African hip hop artist who hails from Uganda. His love for music began at age 13 and most of his rap influences sprung from the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Eminem and Nas. Back home he looked up to the likes of Klear Kut. He began working on his craft, learning the basics from these influences and created a rapper whose flow, diction and wordplay are slowly grasping his hometown, Kampala. He performed at the talent shows at his high school and there he discovered his desire to be a musician. Fast forward to 2012, CODE took his rapping to another level, performed at even bigger stages, became a proud member of GEUrban and has now become a force to reckon with in the UG Hip Hop Scene today, following the mainstream success of his hit song, “SHUT IT DOWN”.
