Afrigo Band, 38 Years of Performing

Live band music has been gaining popularity in Uganda lately. Most posh hotels and hangouts have band themed nights, while some bands have permanent places from where they perform. But one band has been in the game, performing minimally once a week for a long time. And now they are in celebratory performances, marking the 38th year. Afrigo band has been delivering great music since 1975, during this time they have produced 21 albums and the 22nd is undergoing mastering.


According to the band’s executive director, James Wasula, Afrigo stands for Africa Go Forward. He adds that Afrigo as a band aims at liberating Africa through good music. And over the years, Afrigo has composed and performed good songs in salsa, reggae, zouk, pop, African, old and new songs; songs that get everyone on the dance floor irrespective of age.  


The rich lyrical content and majestic instrumentation of the songs, self-written and composed by Afrigo band members has endeared many. Some of the songs are a memory lane of the times Uganda as a country has witnessed, from the political turbulent times of the 1980’s; HIV/AIDS acute times of the early 1990’s plus love songs of all times.


And as the performances of Afrigo Band at their home base shows, they are still stamping the stage.
