On September 27 Uganda will be hosting the tenth ‘Blankets and Wine’ music festival.

This edition of the festival will include headline acts by Suzan Kerunen, Eric Wainaina, Freshly Ground, Kidum, Madtraxx and Liquideep along with others.

However, one of the major headlines is South African Afro-Soul singer and musician, Zahara Bulelwa Mkutukana.

She is famous for predominantly singing in her native language, Zulu as well as English. She has won many awards for her singing, including ‘Best Female Artist’ and ‘Album of the Year’ at the South African Music Awards.

East African Business Week described her music as ‘afro-soul,’ a mixture between styles which they reported as being popularized by India Arie and Tracy Chapman.

The Brand Manager of Tusker Malt Lager, Phoebe Nakabazzi, announced the progress of the festival as well as Zahara’s decision to partake. “Nine events down the road and the ‪‎Blankets and Wine Kampala experience only keeps getting better. We are excited to have Zahara, an authentic Afro-Soul singer headlining this year’s event as we mark 10 events for what has become Uganda’s most anticipated event.”
