Her Music classified loosely as “afro-soul” has been described as a mixture between styles that have been popularized by Tracy Chapman and India Arie.Announcing the development, Phoebe Nakabazzi, the Brand Manager Tusker Malt Lager said, “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.”
At just 23 years of age Zahara shot to the lime light with her debut album Loliwe in 2011, selling out the first issue within just 72hours and 19 days later the album reached platinum status in South Africa surpassing the 100,000 days mark later.This made Zahara the second Musician to break that record after the legendary Brenda Fassie.
She will entertain Blankets and Wine attendees alongside Lilian Mbabazi and the Sundowners Band, A Pass and Solome.
The picnic-style event will again be held at its proverbial home, the Uganda Museum grounds on September 27th, 2015 and organizers have promised an even bigger celebration to commemorate the 10th edition.
