Kampala Taxi Sessions - Judith Babirye's
Click to enlarge

One of the near universals things in life is love for mothers.  As another addition to the litany of songs recorded to honor these special women is Judith Babirye’s “Maama” – which is hit in the mutuatus (taxis) these days.

 Not only is Uganda’s Babirye known for her singing abilities, she’s a church pastor who has carved out a niche for herself in the world of gospel.  And true to her mission of helping others, Babirye has used her high-pitched voice and even higher popularity to launch a 'Maama Campaign' aimed at providing safe motherhood to women across East Africa. While at a party, in the taxi or restaurant, “Maama” serves as a reminder of the immeasurable value of mothers in our lives.

 


About Kampala Taxi Sessions

Anyone who's spent time in Africa quickly learns that the place to discover new music is not the clubs...or radio stations...but the taxis.  Kampala Taxi Sessions is written by Hillary Muheebwa, our Kampala-based editor reporting from the font lines - the streets and taxis.  Make sure to follow him on Twitter.
