As Idi Amin’s lunacy crescendoed, Geoffrey Oryema fled Uganda immediately following the assassination of his father. In exile, his music flourished. His talent caught the eye of Peter Gabriel and a few other giants of the music industry in western Europe. Oryema weaves an enigmatic tapestry of emotion. His music is subtle, even easy going, with a tinge of haunting angst. You can feel the full charm of Acholi, his mother-tongue, when Oryema sings. It’s nearly impossible to find a peer to Geoffrey Oryema.
