Musicians Bruce Melody, Igor Mabano, Charly na Nina are the new faces to entertain local music fanatics at Rwanda Day in Germany come 5th October for the first time.
Rwanda Day has been dominated by the same faces for years by celebrated artists like Meddy, Alpha, The Ben and King James and Teta Diana. But this year the organizers replaced them with young talented music stars.
The move has been praised by local music enthusiasts both living in the country and abroad, calling it a smart move to promote local music as well as giving platform to other artists apart from the usual ones.
“I don’t see a big change but the idea is good and I wish to see new faces entertaining diaspora community every year,” says artists manager Alex Muyoboke.
“It’s a good initiative to see new artists performing at Rwanda Day, but to me I would like to see artists with songs promoting government development programs included,” says Radio personality Joel Rutaganda.
“Am happy to see my favorite artists Jules Sentore and Charly na Nina performing live in Germany and I wish next time to see Isano Alyn also,” Dinah Keza living in Germany said.
Rwanda Day was initiated to share government progress on various developmental programs with Diaspora community and exchanging ideas on how to build the country.
The whole list of artists to perform at Rwanda Day event in Germany include Jules Sentore, Bruce Melody, Igor Mabano, Kitoko, Intore Masamba and Charly Na Nina, Dj Flor as the main event disc spinner.
The artists are slated to take off to Germany late this week to get enough time to rest as well as following Rwanda Day proceedings.
The conference is always graced by top government officials headed by president Paul Kagame where he always share ideas with friends of Rwanda and Diaspora community aiming at developing Rwanda as a country.
