KAMPALA, Uganda: Ugandans can be categorized as those under ‘Team No Sleep,’ fraternity. Why? They are always innovating and coming up with new things that amaze.
Now as we enter the Christmas season, seven Ugandans led by IT guru Henry Tamale, have innovated a new entertainment under the ugsound nod, www.ugsound.com. Speaking to The Investigator in an exclusive interview, Tamale hinted that for the years he has been setting up FM radio stations’ programming software, he noted that Ugandans, both within and in the diaspora love local music.
“There is love for local artists and their music. This is the reason we sat down and came up with ugsound. It is a spot where Ugandans anywhere in the world can access Uganda’s latest local hits at the click of a mouse or finger on their phones. Tamale said.
“Ugsound.com is a Uganda Music Library having all Ugandan music in audio, video and mixes. Its mission is to see that Ugandan Music is all in one store to ease on the struggle of searching for it by all people worldwide.”
He said the Ugandan artistes are given chance to avail people with the most relevant information through their profiles as well as the upcoming releases of their new hits.
“Music is the only true universal mankind language admitted to the soul to sort the spirit and never dies,” said Tamale one of Uganda and the region’s best radio programmers.
Tamale’s social media expert, Ssemakula said their vision is to see that all independent Ugandan musicians and record labels have access to technology and tools that will allow them to spread their music and compete in the ever-changing world of digital music.
“We aim to provide the music community access the Ugandan music they love listening to always in the existing and emerging digital entertainment environment worldwide.” He noted that worldwide, any song can be requested for, including live radio and Television presentations in the country.
