One of the world’s renowned reggae saxophonists Dean Fraser will perform alongside Tarrus Riley in Kampala come August 30 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
Bell Jamz has confirmed the Jamaican saxophonist as one of the addition to the star studded line-up expected at the Swangz All Star concert.
The 60 year old Jamaican is considered one of Jamaica’s finest brass players and has developed an international following for his sultry jazz-toned reggae music.
Fraser has performed alongside legends such as Bob Marley and shot to fame when he recorded two covers of Marley, Dean Plays Bob and Dean Plays Bob volume II. Both Riley and Fraser will perform in Uganda for the first time.
At the moment, preparations for the event are in high gear with organizers hiring sound engineers from the UK to ensure a world class production. Robert Stuart, who also doubles as Sean Paul’s sound engineer will be part of the sound and production team.
Tarrus and Dean will be convoyed by the 12 man strong Blak Soil band.
