East Africa’s finest musician and guitarist Jean Pierre Nimbona famous on stage as Kidumu advised Rwandan artists to stick on their real voices and stop using auto tunes for their music to cross borders.
The star disclosed the information to tukabyine.com shortly after performing at Serena on 11th July.
“Rwandan artists still base on computers (auto tune) to make a good voice but auto tune does more harm to their voice uniqueness,” says Kidumu
Kidumu added that, musicians should “let people know their real voices and trust me with in short time, Rwandan music can sell worldwide.”
Using auto tunes is one of the biggest challenges facing Rwandan music industry especially the young blood.
This is mostly witnessed when Rwanda is called to participate in world music festivals, same faces keep on representing Rwanda because most of the established artists don’t know how to sing live using musical instruments only without computer help.
Rwanda boasts few musicians that manage live music like Mani Martin, Alpha Rwirangira, Teta Diana, Sentore and cultural music troupes.
However, as showbiz fraternity continues to urge artists to stop playbacks and concentrate on live music, some of the artists have started practicing live music.
Kidumu is a celebrated musician across Africa and an icon musically in East African music arena.
He has worked with various local artists including Alpha Rwirangira and Frank Joe.
