Singer-songwriter Jules Sentore is set to launch his debut album titled, Mulahoneza, on October 25 at Kigali Serena Hotel.
Slated to perform at the concert is the Gakondo group and other local artistes.
“I have been busy putting together this album and I am excited that its ready and I can’t wait to present it to the public. I encourage my fans to attend my concert. Its going to be a live show, with great stage performances,” said Sentore.
The 10-track album is a blend of folk songs and R&B ballads. With sounds rooted in Rwanda, Sentore’s lyrics reflect a sort of precious heritages of the country’s culture.
Born into a musical family, he began playing instruments at a very young age; he was first taught how to play musical instruments, like a drum and guitar.
Sentore admits, “I’ve definitely grown as a musician since then, but in a way, I couldn’t have reached where I am now if it wasn’t for my family and fans.”
The last couple of years have been incredibly prolific for Sentore. The singer has collaborated with many musicians.
The 30-year-old is one of the 21 grandchildren of the late Athanase Sentore, the tunesmith famed for his exceptional traditional music, both locally and internationally.
