Kigali Up Festival – Music Festival
Kigali Up festival is one of the most enjoyable events since it started in 2011, it became the first music festival in Rwanda and one of the most beautiful festivals in Africa. Normally, in every summer season, artists of different music styles such as hip-hop, reggae, blues and pop either local or international, meet in Kigali to entertain the music lovers through beautiful voices. This festival was started by Murigande “mighty Popo” in 2011, when he was from Canada after winning the Juno Award. Many international artists attended this festival, such as: Ismael Lô, Alpha Brondy, Patoranking, Quantum Split rock soul band, a guitarist named Manou Gallo from Ivory coast and many others who came in different times. In 2017, the organizers of this festival made an agreement with the minister of culture and sport who was Uwacu Julienne that this festival should happen on thanksgiving and she was the one who opened it for the first time. We will share with you the unusual things that happened in this festival in our coming articles even though it didn’t happen this year because of COVID-19 pandemic.
