Musician Naava Grey enchanted both music enthusiasts and conservationists during the launch of the Wildlife Concert held over the weekend.
The National Theater served as the captivating venue for Naava Grey’s performance, where the audience enthusiastically sang along to every line, including hits like “Nikalami”, “Ninga omuloge”, “Nteredde”, among others.
Before Naava graced the stage, the audience was treated to lively performances by artists such as Baba Raa and Irene Namutebi.
Themed “Music for Conservation,” the Wildlife Concerts marked their first edition as an initiative where the harmonies of music seamlessly blend with the heartbeat of conservation.
Organized by Africa Tourism and Environment Initiatives in collaboration with Brand Ambassadors 256, the concerts are aimed at creating a symphony of change and commitment to preserving Uganda’s diverse biodiversity.
Bismac Amumpaire, the team lead at Africa Tourism and Environment Initiatives, emphasized that the Uganda Wildlife Concerts go beyond being a mere musical celebration.
He described them as a powerful call to action for the Conservation of Wildlife.
He revealed plans to take the impactful concert series to various regions, hosting events near different national parks across Uganda.
Amumpaire noted that these concerts seek to deepen the audience’s appreciation for Uganda’s incredible Wildlife, turning the concerts into not just entertainment experiences but also educational journeys.
Furthermore, the proceeds from the Wildlife Concerts will be directly allocated to the conservation efforts of nearby national parks. For the inaugural edition, the funds will be directed towards Ngamba Island.
