It’s not the first time Jali, a Rwandan musician, singer and composer, has come to perform in Kigali. This weekend on Sunday 22nd December, he will again showcase his talent at Kigali Serena Hotel from 6.00pm. The twenty five-year old was born in Rwanda. He is a writer and performer of folk music, while most of his compositions are in French.
Jali chose his stage name in reference to the name of a hill in Rwanda. He released his first album, the Espanola in June 2011, followed in October by another entitled Des jours et des lunes, produced by Barclay Universal.
In February 2012, Jali won an award for Artist of the Year at the Octave de la Musique. His album Des jours et des lunes was certified as gold in Belgium in September 2012. This weekend’s performance at Serena will see attendants part with 10,000Rwf and 15,000 Rwf for ordinary and VIP seats respectively.
